Contact Harrison Reed. He wrote one. I think he's revising it.

<Edit>
I learned alto simply by learning to play exercises I knew on mine. Reading bass and tenor clef on an alto can be a help sometimes, and a useful side skill. If you want a method, have fun with it. But it's really not necessary. Most of us didn't use one back in the Bad Old Days.

A dissertation was written on this topic with survey responses from professors with recommendations on methods, solos, orchestral excerpts, and equipment. It is called "Current trends in alto trombone pedagogy in the United States"
The Sluchin Alto method got the highest ratings (60% of professors rated it as excellent).

Of course your mileage may vary, and the study was done in 2005. There are probably some new materials since then.

I like the Stephen Anderson books - Hickeys carries them. Good for getting started on the alto.
