What do a 1949 DeSoto and a Yeti-like creature have in common?  They are both hidden in Sugar Man Swamp. The True Blue Scouts of the Sugar Man Swamp is a heartfelt story of raccoon scouts and a twelve-year-old boy trying to protect their beloved swamp. Will the scouts call on the Sugar Man to handle the threats of feral hogs and developers? Read this tall tale with an ecological twist about a Texas swamp and be prepared to enjoy the adventure and mystery.  (Prepared by:  Karen Zimmerman, St. John Neumann Catholic School, and Laura Jeffers, Bethel Hanberry Elementary School, South Carolina Children's Books Award Nominee, 2016)
