I read a book long time ago about an 1850's American family that made/invented gunpowder, the book went through generations of the family who joined the business unfortunately i can't remember the book title or the author or even the family name any help would be greatly appreciated.. i would love to read it again

Hi Lainey. Was the book about the Dupont family? They were big in the US gunpowder business in the 1800's. 


There is a series of books by author Michael Dodd called the Dupont Family Chronicles starting with A Strange Destiny. Not sure they are completely related though. 


Good luck finding the book. I know it can be so frustrating when you can remember bits, and you can remember that you enjoyed it, but little else. :)
