Set in the Canadian Rockies, Hooker & Brown is an evocative adventure story about one man's quest to put to rest a historical mystery. 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.
