The Adventures of Gunpowder and Conrad

The Adventures of Gunpowder and Conrad is a novel for intermediate readers and all horse lovers. It is funny and entertaining story told from the horse's perspective.

The setting is a rural Central Texas town in the 1940's. Life was simple then. Conrad's parents allowed him to be a boy. He rambled over the town and country side on his first horse Gunpowder. The Adventures of Gunpowder and Conrad is an entertaining story told from the horse's perspective. Gunpowder doesn't understand why he has been allowed to land in the lap of a rowdy kid but later grows to love this boy and his new home and friends.

"My name's Gunpowder. I'm a four year old bay quarter horse gelding. Up to one point in my life, I had felt like I was special, like I stood out among other horses, but there I was being auctioned off like any common horse. My heart sank. I was sure the auctioneer had said, "sold to the lady with the supur-happy, yelping, snotty-nosed boy," who would jab holes in my sides. The kid was just as I had imagined. He wore a dime store straw hat and scuffed cowboy boots, and he peered at me through the slats. I could tell right from the start Conrad had tremendous spirit. He did love his horse, which is the first sign of a good horseman.

Professional Reviews

best selling author, Lori Wilde
"The Adventures of Gunpowder and Conrad is an earnesst, coming of age story rooted in traditional family values. This boy and his horse are sure to lasso your heart."

Fred Blalock, former city editor, Fort Worth Star Telegram
"A young cowboy called Conrad, astride his wise-cracking cow pony named Gunpowder, rambles and rollics across West Texas cow country of 50 years ago, stirring up off-beat adventures that will tickle your withers."

Scott Hooper, minister to children, Cottonwood Baptist Church, Dublin, Texas
"In today's hectic, fast paced world, Michael Rountree beckons us toward a time overflowing with simple faith, simple pleasures and simple living. Filled with clever wit and down home Texas colloquy, The Adventures of Gunpowder and Conrad is destined to be the first in a seies of great kid's books.
