The Secret of Wildcat Swamp is Volume 31 in the original The Hardy Boys Mystery Stories published by Grosset & Dunlap.

This book was written for the Stratemeyer Syndicate by William Dougherty in 1952.[1] Between 1959 and 1973 the first 38 volumes of this series were systematically revised as part of a project directed by Harriet Adams, Edward Stratemeyer's daughter.[2] The original version of this book was shortened in 1969 by Priscilla Baker-Carr[1] resulting in two slightly different stories sharing the same title.

Plot summary[edit]

An paleontology expedition in the West turns into a desperate attempt to capture freight train robbers and an escaped convict.
