Bargain Book Copy
Based on actual events, this thrilling story of children's bravery in the face of a powerful enemy has been continuously in print since its first publication in 1942. During the German occupation of Norway, the children of the small town of Riswyk set out to save the community's gold from the Nazis who have seized control of the area. Using their sleds, the children smuggle thousands of pounds of gold bullion down a mountain to a waiting ship bound for the United States. In doing so they must pass by the Nazi guards. Day after day the children make their dangerous journey, avoiding detection until one final, daring confrontation with the Nazis.
