For nearly a century, Karl May (1842—1912), the most-read
German author of all time, enflamed the imagination of European audiences with
his action-packed “travel” tales of the American West. His most famous
protagonists in these novels were “Old Shatterhand,” an incomparable
German-born frontiersman, and his noble and equally adept Apache blood brother,
JChief Winnetou. In
The Oil Prince (Der Olprinz) May created another multicultural
adventure full of excitement, villainy, and courage—sprinkled throughout with a
Germanic twinkle of comic relief.
Translated from the German by Herbert Windolf, a native of Wiesbaden, Germany, currently residing in Prescott, Arizona, this volume continues the exploits of Old Shatterhand and his frontier friends. The story is set in the late 1860s in Old Arizona where danger abounds and where survival is dependent on having the fastest draw and the sharpest wits.
The Oil Prince is suitable reading for young teenagers through adults,
and introduces new enthusiasts to the heroism and adventure of 1860s
Rarely out of print since it was first published as a book
The Oil Prince is a lively companion piece to Winnetou, the first
