Goodbye to Gunpowder

Front Cover
Crown Publishers, 1963 - Gunpowder - 224 pages
Our title might be misleading. Gunpowder has been in existence for a thousand years, and a complete history of it would call for a much longer book than this. What is attempted here is a recital of the story of the original black gunpowder, a simple substance that changed the face of the earth, and especially as that story pertains to the United States. - Foreword.
