by Barry Murray

A World War II espionage adventure novel. This one really gets you thinking about the biggest mystery of World War II. What really happened at Pearl Harbor, and why? The answer lies on Oregon’s Mt. Cascade.
Now that certain documents have been declassified, now is the time for the last unsolved mystery of World War II to be published as a “historical novel,” as the whole story cannot be proven. CODE:Yellow Chrysanthemum deals with the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, and why they did not hit the Panama Canal on the same day! Perhaps the answer was ‘politics’. Horsepacker/professor Jedidiah Smith leads the way from a discovery on Oregon’s Mt. Cascade to Washington, D.C., and Alaska, and Panama, and Hawaii triangulating how an Enigma Code was at fault.
About the author
If it is true that the best advice for a novelist is to live what he writes about, then this book is an experience built upon an experience. Barry Murray pioneered the Pacific Crest Trail by riding horseback 2,500 miles from Mexico to Canada; he has kayaked the 2,000 mile length of the Yukon River; and he has lived with the Choco´ Indians while on a gold mining expedition into the jungle of Panama. Murray, who claims to be an amateur ‘horseback historian’ simply for the credentials of being from a Celtic family that had traveled every trail in America from the Cumberland Gap, to the Natchese Trace, to the Santa Fe, and cattle drives, to the Oregon immigrant migration, to Alaska’s Chilkoot Pass, can be counted upon as a non academic resource to “tell it the way it was.” Telling it the “way it is” has led to the yet unfinished www.USATravelMagazines.com, that started with his AlaskaTravelMagazine.com. At age 73 he only wants a bit of piece and quite to continue on “typing as fast as I can.”
