Karl May Friends

Old Shatterhand, the tourist in his own Wild West ... aircraft with flapping wings ... and a testament that was never found.

After finishing the South America translations, I revisited 'Winnetou', this time Karl May's very last novel: 'Winnetou-Book 4'. Again, the title was chosen to set my version of this enigmatic tale apart from others (of any language, past or present), and also apart from the actual 'Winnetou' trilogy. Although May writes in his introduction that it is the conclusion to his 'Winnetou' trilogy, he also states that 'Winnetou-Book 4' is, at the same time, the conclusion to 'Old Surehand', as well as his epic 'Satan & Ischariot'.

Karl May's last novel was first published in 1910. My English edition was published in 2010, one hundred years after it's first German language appearance. To celebrate its centenary, I not only issued it as a paperback, but also as an 'Expanded Edition' in hard cover, with a personal tribute to Karl May by recreating the reading of Winnetou's testament in the 'Passiflora Room'. More about Winnetou's testament in the introduction of 'Winnetou-Book 4, 100th Anniversary Expanded Edition'.
