Tom agrees to help drive a railroad tunnel through an Andes mountain peak that has hit a deposit of "hard, dense rock" If the tunnel cannot be completed on time an evil rival company will get the contract. Tom develops a blasting powder, based on his Giant Cannon propellant. Along the way to Peru, Tom & his team are accosted by spies, threatened by bombs, solve mysteries and save a baby's life. Tom discovers a subterranean lost city and experiences even more mysteries and adventures! Tom Swift, the inspirational boyhood hero of Steve Wozniak and Isaac Asimov, is an all-American young inventor in his teens. These fantastic and future-predicting stories are VERY alive today. Swift was modeled after the entrepreneurial and inventive geniuses Henry Ford and Thomas Edison, who both changed our world more than any other two people. Like Arthur C. Clarke, Swift invented or predicted many modern discoveries including the Taser, camcorder, video-phone, electric car, and several others.
