Tom Swift and His Motorcycle

Tom Swift and His Motorcycle - Victor Appleton,  Classic Fiction (Editor),  Classic Adventures (Compiler),  Created by Classic Young Readers A story with a good heart. Although it was written long ago, and reflects some outdated social attitudes and horse-drawn wagons, the plot focuses on protecting the shockingly modern-seeming value of intellectual property. The writing style contains some classic faux pas, but they didn't detract from the fun adventure, and I found them part of the antiquated charm.
