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)
