Description

This is a translation of Karl May's novel "Winnetou". The text was heavily abridged and edited by the translator. One major change is that Old Shatterhand's real name is Jack Hildreth instead of Charley, i.e. implicitly Karl May.

Winnetou, a Native American hero who became the chief of the tribe of the Mescalero Apaches (and of the Apaches in general), after his father Intschu-tschuna and his sister Nscho-tschi were slain by the white bandit Santer. Old Shatterhand became the blood brother of Winnetou.

This book symbolize a romantic desire for a simpler life in close contact with nature. In fact, the popularity of the series is due in large part to the ability of the stories to tantalize fantasies many Europeans had and have for this more untamed environment.

Karl May's "Winnetou" novel with about 200 million copies worldwide, one of the best selling German writers of all time in German, including the sequels.
Old Shatterhand is the alter ego of Karl May, and May himself maintained that he experienced all the adventures in person, even though in fact he did not visit America until after he wrote most of his well-known Western stories, and never traveled west of Buffalo, NY. []
