From the Back Cover
The Sugar Creek Gang discovers a "disguise" hidden in a sycamore hollow. Does it belong to the bank robber hiding in the swamp? A mysterious map hidden near the tree proves to be even more exciting than the disguise. Before the adventure ends, the gang encounters the robber, helps Bill Collins welcome a new baby sister, and saves the victim of a black widow spider bite. Join Bill and the rest of the Sugar Creek Gang as they learn the lesson of "sowing" and "reaping."
The Sugar Creek Gang series chronicles the faith-building adventures of a group of fun-loving, courageous Christian boys. These classic stories have been inspiring children to grow in their faith for more than five decades. More than three million copies later, children continue to grow up relating to members of the gang as they struggle with the application of their Christian faith to the adventure of life.
Now that these stories have been updated for a new generation, you and your child can join in the Sugar Creek excitement.
Paul Hutchens's memories of childhood adventures around the fishing hole, the swimming hole, the island, and the woods that surround Indiana's Sugar Creek inspired these beloved tales.

There's one huge difference between the 2 of us that goes far beyond the religious affiliations of my own and my daughter's family. When I started reading this book in Loves Park, Illinois in the 1940s, there was no TV! In fact, there were no prolific, omnipresent screens of every size and shape. As a teacher I unavoidably noticed the difference, and the ever-widening gap, between my experience and my students'. For some time I tried to meet students half way with screenings of the classics, computer programs, and even e-mail literary contests in "real time." I'm afraid the education received was mostly my own--about texting, chat-room prose, and social "connectivity" through Facebook and its many wannabes.Read more ›
