Inspired by the true story of the Norwegian's daring plan to have their children sneak $9 million worth of gold bullion out of the country during the Nazi occupation of Norway, this book would seem far fetched had it not actually happened! A page turner from start to finish, you can't help but feel your spirit soar at the dedication and sheer bravery demonstrated in the face of unfathomable danger — Patricia Vunk


In the bleak winter of 1940, Nazi troops parachuted into Peter Lundstrom's tiny Norwegian village and held it captive. Nobody thought the Nazis could be defeated—until Uncle Victor told Peter how the children could fool the enemy. It was a dangerous plan. They had to slip past Nazi guards with nine million dollars in gold hidden on their sleds. It meant risking their country's treasure—and their lives. This classic story of how a group of children outwitted the Nazis and sent the treasure to America has captivated generations of readers.
