Rebecca | 37 comments I read this book in 4th grade. I have no clue when it was written, maybe the 70's or 80's.

The plot centers around a young boy, who is part of a town (maybe in Poland?) that rebelled against the invading Nazi troops by hiding the town's rather large stash of gold.

I think the cover might have displayed a sled with gold bars strapped to it. There was a lot of snow in the book. Lots and lots of snow.

I have been googling this book for ages to no avail, so I hope someone else remembers it.

Thanks!

Rebecca | 37 comments It's a novel. Historical Fiction, I think. (I think it was based on a true story)

Rebecca | 37 comments I FISHED MY WISH!

I finally found it! It's "Snow Treasure" by Marie McSwigan. Now must add it to my forgotten-favorites shelf and keep an eye for a copy so I can revisit it.
