The Vida Eterna fishing boat is racing up and down Sugar Creek and leaving excitement in its wake. John Fenwick, a missionary to Costa Rica, and his wife are spending a month in the new Sugar Creek missionary cabin. New rifles and fishing tackle boxes lead to some life-or-death adventures for Gang. Come along with the Sugar Creek Gang and learn the importance of swimming upstream with your life, rather than floating downstream like an old, dead fish.
