Short answer: no, Hydro can only be installed on Ubuntu versions 12.04 (Precise), 12.10 (Quantal) and 13.04 (Raring).

As to whether you can read a book for Hydro while using Indigo: @Wolf's answer is correct: there is not too much difference between the two, but you will run into some (minor) changes that you'll have to account for. At the very least you'll have to replace every occurrence of hydro in (pkg names fi) with indigo.

ROS has a support of the current and two previous releases, i. e. indigo and hydro and groovy at the time being. You can still install hydro, it should work without troubles, see: http://wiki.ros.org/hydro/Installation

However, from the user point of view there are no major differences between hydro and indigo, see http://wiki.ros.org/indigo/Migration . You will likely able to understand what's going on if you use indigo while reading your hydro book. "normal" user code is portable in the most cases.
