Snow Treasure by Marie McSwigan, Scholastic paperback printing, TX152,  156 pages. Illustrated by Andre LaBlanc.

DESCRIPTION: “It is a dangerous plan. Every boy and girl in the little Norwegian village of Riswyk knows that! Now a sled ride can be a matter of life or death. Can the gold be saved from the Nazi troops that have parachuted into Norway? Can nine million dollars worth of gold be taken secretly to Uncle Victor’s ship- and sent to America for safe-keeping? ‘Your country needs your help,’ Uncle Victor tells Peter Lundstrom and his friends. The boys and girls of Riswyk do not hesitate. Under the sharp eyes and bristling guns of Nazi sentries, they begin the daring rescue of the hidden gold. A thrilling tale of wartime courage that really happened.” (from the back cover)


About vintagescholastics

I love these old Scholastics! I am a bookseller, writer, and dog-lover; live at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains of New York with my computer-programmer husband. We love motor-cycle riding, renovating our old camp on Lake Desolation, gardening, and researching our genealogy. The purpose of this blog is to highlight those beloved old books from the Scholastic Book fairs from 1950 - 1979. This will serve as a catalogue of the books, with their identifying numbers, a plot summary, and a photo of the cover; with a searchable index. I want to give all of the writers and illustrator's bios so they get credit (many were writers in the summer while on vacation from their regular schoolteaching jobs.; some are lesser known efforts by very famous people; and some are reprinted classics.) Hopefully, their fans will be able to identify favorite titles with snipets of remembered information. We will always be adding new ones, and welcome your submissions
