"Snow Treasure" by Marie McSwigan

This novel is set in Nazi occupied Norway during World War II.  A group of children use sleds to smuggle their country's gold past Nazi soldiers -- ultimately saving lives by keeping this resource out of the hands of the enemy.

I 'always' enjoy books and movies based on a true story and this book is no exception.  Although it should be noted that some question the credibility of the story.

This captivating story of bravery and courage is well worth the read for anyone preteen and up.

  1. This sounds like a unique and interesting book. As to the story's credibility, well ... sometimes fact could be stranger than fiction!

  2. I agree, Nancy -- Facts can be stranger than fiction!
