To the White Sea

To the White Sea

1993

Synopsis:

In Dickey's third and last novel he mixed some of the suspense of Deliverance and the World War II and flight elements of Alnilam to get To the White Sea. The protagonist, Muldrow, parachutes from his burning B-29 into the city of Tokyo. Trapped in the middle of enemy country, Muldrow knows he must travel north and guides himself toward Hokkaido as he thinks about his Alaskan home. Muldrow's only weapon is a sharpened butter knife that he uses to guide through the ribs toward an enemy's heart. Muldrow, using only a small silk map of Japan, must avoid attention and recognition as he travels secretly from town to town searching for food and shelter.
