SIGNED
 on the title page by Jerry Auld.

While reading a history book of the area, Rumi — a trail crewman in the Rocky Mountain Parks system — learns of two mysterious mountains, and their story is re-entered into the climber’s imagination. Excited by the idea of seeing the mountains and retracing the steps of earlier mountaineers, Rumi begins a pursuit to reach these peaks and to find out if they truly do exist.

Based on a true story from the Rocky Mountains and filled with exhilarating descriptions of one climber’s attempt to tackle some of the world’s greatest peaks, Hooker & Brown explores the effect of mystery and historical inaccuracies in our lives. Hooker and Brown, fictionalizes historical characters including James Outram, Norman Collie, and Arthur Coleman. New Paperback (no edition).  Short-Listed for the 2009 Boardman Tasker Prize.

Jerry Auld’s short stories have been published in Alpinist magazine and in the Canadian Alpine Journal. He is a graduate of the University of Calgary and an alumnus of the Banff Writing Studio. At the 2005 Banff Mountain Film Festival, Jerry was the co-recipient of the 2005 People’s Choice Award for the independent film Sister ExtremeHooker & Brown is his first novel.
