Canada, 2009, 1st edition. 230 pp. Set in the Canadian Rockies, Hooker & Brown is an evocative adventure story about one man’s quest to put to rest a historical mystery. SIGNED 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). SIGNED by Jerry Auld.
