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 Hutchen'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.
In The Green Tent Mystery, the Sugar Creek Gang stumbles across a woman digging a hole in an abandoned cemetery on a dark summer night. Investigate with the gang as they get to the bottom of the mysterious holes that keep appearing in the fields. Discover the important role that Bill Collins' little sister, Charlotte Ann, plays in solving the mystery. In the end, you'll discover with the gang that "all things work together for good to them that love God".
In The Bull Fighter, 10,080 minutes fly fast when Bill's cousin, Wally, and his copper-colored dog, Alexander, come for a visit. Alexander manages to tangle with all kinds of wildlife from skunks and snapping turtles to a giant red bull. A late night visit from some mysterious strangers leads to a priceless gift for Wally. Come along with the Sugar Creek Gang and you'll learn that following Jesus is just as important for city boys as it is for country boys.
In The Timber Wolf, a winter vacation for the Sugar Creek Gang at the Snow Goose Lodge is full of surprises. Old Man Paddler's nephew, Barry Boyland, introduces his fianc Jeanne, and she ends up in the middle of a blizzard before the story is over. Along the way, the gang goes ice fishing, checks traps, encounters a wolf, and chases a bear. This Sugar Creek Gang adventure will deepen your appreciation for nature as well as for the importance of a relationship with Jesus.
In Western Adventure, hanging the imaginary horse thief, Snaterpazooka, in the Sugar Creek Hills leads to a real-life shoot-out. The adventure includes an out-of-control campfire, a horse-killing thunderstorm, and a runaway boat. As Bill Collins faces trouble with Tom Till, he remembers the sermon about ruling your spirit and being slow to anger. Learn with Bill the importance of choosing the proper boss.
In The Killer Cat, a savage-tempered wildcat enters Sugar Creek territory and stirs up lots of trouble. Before the adventure ends, the wildcat kills many prized animals. Bill Collins spends part of the time home alone with only God and his Savage .22 rifle to protect him. In the end, an unlikely hero saves Little Jim from certain tragedy. Follow the Sugar Creek Gang as they walk Jesus' narrow trail and try to avoid the "rabbit trails" that tempt them away.
In The Colorado Kidnapping, the Sugar Creek Gang heads west for the Aspen Music Festival in the beautiful Colorado Rockies. They enjoy a world class rodeo, and they even get to meet the famous rodeo cowboy, Cranberry Jones. A scenic, chair-lift ride leads to the solution of a missing woman mystery. Witness with the Sugar Creek Gang God's ability to turn tragedy into triumph when people surrender their lives to Him.

Dave Fern5 Stars Out Of 5November 11, 2009Dave FernOur son loves reading and we wanted to find a good series for him to enjoy. The Sugar Creek Gang series is fantastic - exciting Christian-based stories about boys and all the adventures they get up to. He can't wait to get the next one each time (and his younger sister also enjoys them too!!). We've purchased the whole series of 36 books to slowly give him - he's just finished number 12.
Michael Krieger5 Stars Out Of 5March 20, 2009Michael KriegerWe had special ordered these from TWO of the local Christian Book Stores and neither one were actually able to deliver. My husband found these on your web site and not only did we get what we wanted...they were cheaper! Thank you.
