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.

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.
