About the Book

Volume 7 of the first Tom Swift novel series, written and published by Grosset & Dunlap, is titled Tom Swift Among the Diamond Makers, Or, The Secret of Phantom Mountain.
Diamonds are supposed to be a girl's best friend. Based on this conviction, Tom Swift is purchasing a diamond pin for Mary Nestor in a neighborhood jewelry shop. Mr. Jenks from Earthquake Island (a locale in the previous Tom Swift novel) visits the store and advises Tom not to buy a diamond there when the store owner abruptly departs the establishment to pursue someone who may be preparing a theft. Tom would receive a far better diamond from him that was created in Phantom Mountain. The next Tom Swift adventure starts at this point.
In the novel Tom Swift Among the Diamond Makers, Tom Swift sets off in the airship Red Cloud in quest of Phantom Mountain and the diamond makers there with Mr. Jenks, Mr. Damon, who is always around, and Mr. Parker, the "Debbie Downer" of scientists. Tom Swift would be up against some group of outlaws in the early Tom Swift novels. Mother Nature was the foe on Earthquake Island. Both are there this time, posing threats to the protagonist and his companions.

About Author

Victor Appleton

The Stratemeyer Syndicate is fascinating because of how many well-known series they created under several pen identities, such Victor Appleton. The most well-known series published under the Victor Appleton identity is Tom Swift, and like the other series "authored" by Victor Appleton, the plots for this one were created from outlines by ghostwriters. A second series was created because Tom Swift was so well-liked. The Syndicate determined in 1954 that the first series' Tom Swift had a teenage son who emulated his father's inventiveness. Compared to the first series, this second one has more space-related themes (which featured airships and other inventions appropriate to its time period). Victor Appleton II, the author's son who was created in the same way as Tom Swift was, was not a real-life person like the original pen name Victor Appleton.
