Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385313098, Paperback)Award-winning and best-selling author James Dickey returns with the heart-stopping story of Muldrow, an American tail gunner who parachutes from his burning airplane into Tokyo in the final months of World War II. Fleeing the chaotic, ruined city, he instinctively travels north toward a frozen, desolate sanctuary he is certain will assure this survival--and freedom. Making his way through enemy terrain, on the lookout for both danger and opportunity, Muldrow's journey becomes the flight of a pure predator. Moving through the darkness, bombarded by haunting visions that consume his imagination, every step in his violent odyssey brings him closer to a harrowing climax that is pure James Dickey.

Sergeant Muldrow is an American airman who is shot down over Tokyo during World War II. Using skills gained in his youth in his native Alaska, he proceeds to make his escape. A brutal and often poetic tale of survival in the course of which the airman kills a man for his clothes, eats a swan for meat and undergoes torture at the hands of the police. By the author of Deliverance.
