Tom Quest #5 Hidden Stone and #6 Thunder Mountain
On page 10, we learn that about a year has passed since Hamilton Quest returned from staying with the Mandan Indians. This means that more than one year has passed since the early books in this series, yet Tom is still 17 years old.
In Tom Quest #6, The Secret of Thunder Mountain, Tom and Whiz stay with Gulliver on his ranch in Texas. Tom found some strange rocks on nearby Thunder Mountain, but the rocks disappeared. Soon, Tom learns that the rocks are important, and he is determined to find out more.
The books are approximately 180 pages beginning with this title. The first five books are over 200 pages.
I enjoyed learning about Gulliver's ranch and getting to know more about Gulliver, although I prefer the exotic locations.
I greatly enjoyed both of these books.
