Snow Treasure

Our rating: ****

During the winter of 1940, Nazi troops take over the town of Riswyk, Norway. Riswyk’s gold, worth nine million dollars in the United States, is in danger of being discovered by the Nazis. The children of Riswyk take the gold, bit by bit, to a secret ship by hiding it on their sleds. But so many things could go wrong!

I enjoyed this book. It was interesting. In 1940, a Norwegian ship reached Baltimore with $9,000,000 aboard. The gold was reported to have been slipped past Nazi sentries by Norwegian children. The plot of this book is based off that legend.
