Publisher Summary
In the bleak winter of 19 0, 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.

In 1940, when the Nazis reach their Norwegian village, twelve-year-old Peter and his friends use their sleds to transport gold bullion to the secret harbor where Peter's uncle waits to take it to the United States for safekeeping.
