Unhitch the Wagon is the Rhyming journey of Bennie and Bud, two ponies who grew up with a big dream on the Oklahoma prairie to one day become "Boomer" and "Sooner," the greatest ponies in all the land. They must conquer longhorns and cowboys and bears and much more on their brave quest to reach the Palace and pull the glorious Sooner Schooner. The purpose is to connect to young Oklahoma Sooner fans through this triumphant journey. This book incorporates already established OU catch phrases, famous coaches, and Sooner landmarks. The ponies also have to conquer Sooner arch rivals along the way to achieve their goal. The moral of the story is to dare to dream of greatness. History rewards the daring.

Author and Voice of the Sooners, Toby Rowland, takes young Sooner fans on this daring adventure of triumph, and brings to life the most famous mascots in collegiate athletics. No Sooner collection is complete, and no OU fan should be without Unhitch the Wagon - Boomer and Sooner's Journey from the Prairie to the Palace. (An Officially Licensed book of The University of Oklahoma.)

About the Author

Toby Rowland is the two-time Emmy Award winning Voice of the Oklahoma Sooners. A popular fixture behind the mic for the last decade of Sooner football, basketball and baseball, Rowland's enthusiastic and unique style is unmistakable. He has also hosted the highly acclaimed "T-Row in the Morning Show" on the SportsTalk Radio Network for the last 16 years, as well as a multitude of television and radio shows for Sooners Sports TV, Fox Sports Oklahoma and the Sooner Radio Network. It may be through Rowland's beloved "Scenesetters" before every Sooner football game that his gift for writing has best endeared him to OU fans. That gift now gets shared with the next generation of Sooner Nation with his first book, Unhitch the Wagon.

Previously, Rowland was a decorated sports anchor and reporter at KWTV in Oklahoma City for 10 years, winning awards as the host of the Friday Football Blitz and producer of the Statewide Oklahoma Sports Blitz.
