Karl May Books in English

This group has become officially dormant. It happens. If you want to revive this group, or create a new group on the same topic see this page.

Karl May, Germany’s most prolific and best loved author and storyteller has moved! He now lives in Pierpont South Dakota! Once again the thundering hooves of the wild mustangs of Winnetou, grand chief of all the Apache and his blood brother Old Shatterhand can be heard echoing across the length and breadth of the land. Once again they fearlessly look unflinching into the eye of evil, sweeping danger aside in their relentless pursuit of justice for all.

More than three centuries have passed since the first German settlers landed in North America to eventually form the largest single ethnic group in the country. And they keep coming. But it’s hard to maintain the culture and the language in such a melting pot, even though there is an invisible string pulling at our longing to remain tied to our roots. Language changes or erodes with lack of use; old ideals and morals fade in the face of the new world challenges.

More than a hundred years ago Karl May first set pen to paper, creating wild adventures in places he had never been, about people who existed only in his imagination, weaving the moral standards of the time into them. The impact he had around the world was staggering, leaving a profound and lasting impression of the North American Indian.

Now, for the first time in more than a hundred years, a growing number of complete and unabridged English translations of Karl May works are available in print under the auspices of Nemsi Books of Pierpont, South Dakota. In collaboration with Worldwide Sunshine Records, eBooks and audio books are also being produced to accommodate German-Americans who still long for a piece of the fatherland, but struggle with the language and thus, its literary classics.

This is a monumental undertaking on the part of Nemsi Books and Worldwide Sunshine Records. We invite your membership to visit Nemsi Books and/or visit Karl May Trading Post to discover an important piece of their heritage.
