Product Description

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. 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.

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 then 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." Recommended for ages 8 to 11.

    'The Swamp Robber' is funny because Circus is a girl in the movie, but Circus is a boy in the book. Circus is funny, and because he's my age.

    Sugar Creek Gang: The Swamp Robber by Paul Hutchens

    William Jasper "Bill" Collins and his five friends are growing up in a small rural town. Bill and his friend Roy "Dragonfly" Gilbert discover a hidden disguise while out fishing one summer afternoon. The next day, police report a bank robber on the loose and possibly in the area. Bill and Dragonfly get together with their Sugar Creek Gang—Little Jimmy Foote, Big Jim, Leslie "Poetry" Thompson, and Daniel "Circus" Browne—to discuss what they can do about it. Mix in a missing old man from the hills, his long-lost nephew, and the resident drunk and it adds up to quite an adventure for a group of boys, all but one under the age of twelve.

    Overall, this is a fun and easy read. I realize this is a Christian book, but still I think it weighs a little heavy on the preachy side. I would recommend The Swamp Robber by Paul Hutchens to any of my friends with boys or girls ages 8-12.

    Cute story. I think it is similar to The Boxcar Children. Perfect for the suggested age group. It is a bit dated, I think the orginal printing date is 1940. In any event, I still think a young child will find it exciting and adventurous.
