Dave Dashaway and His Hydroplane (Dave Dashaway #2)

3.5  ·  Rating Details ·  4 Ratings  ·  1 Review
Running an airship took nerve, steadiness of purpose, a definite, concrete way of looking at things. Dave knew in his own mind that the Drifter was each hour speeding farther and farther away from the haunts of men. He recalled the old adage, however, which says "the more haste the less speed," and he determined to stick to the plan he had mentally outlined at the start.

A nifty book about a young fellow in the early days of aviation.

It's a fairly typical boys' adventure book of the time period; Dave is cleancut, honest, brave and naturally gifted at flying airships. His sidekick Hiram is also a jolly good fellow, and they're supported by honest older gentlemen. Only the villains have personality flaws.

In this second volume of the series, Dave is called in to assist in the recovery of a hydro-aeroplane, or as we would know it, a seaplane. Criminals have already
