This story takes place in Norway during WWII and is based on a true story, although it contains fictional characters. The book is exciting, well written, and packed with educational value as it teaches about the Nazi occupation of Norway and the way of life in a small Norwegian village in 1940. Peter and his friends are given the task to slip nine million dollars in gold past the Nazi soldiers as they ride their sleds. The story models courage and determination and contains no objectionable material.
