Shortlisted for the 2009 Boardman Tasker Prize for Mountain Literature

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.
