Gunpowder Green

A nostalgic and colourful collection

of rural New Zealand short-stories

There are many beautiful countries around the world, but what makes New Zealand special are its people. Kiwis are resilient, determined, and straightforward. Their can-do attitude mixed with a sprinkling of wry, dry humour separates us from everyone else. Gunpowder Green honours those people and acknowledges our past, their efforts, and reinforces how fortunate we are to call New Zealand home.

In the tradition of iconic Kiwi short-stories, Gunpowder Green is a nostalgic look into New Zealand’s unique and colourful past. Light-hearted, humorous and even thought provoking, each story is varied and highlights New Zealand rural living, a diverse culture and a forgotten yet very familiar lifestyle.
