Karl May never visited the locations he wrote about, but in his imagination, in his mind’s eye, this prolific writer roamed the globe! Except for Greenland, Australia and Antarctica, his many novels and short stories take place on every continent. He researched the locations very well, where his heroes and characters, his alter egos, Old Shatterhand and Kara Ben Nemsi, and his friends, Winnetou and Hajji Halef Omar, as well as many others, some named, some unnamed, performed their various deeds. For this, he relied on travelogues and the research of people who had visited the respective areas. Some of these characters, Old Shatterhand and Winnetou, and locales, like the Wild West, North and Northeast Africa, the Pacific and the Indian Ocean, are featured in this collection of fifteen short stories. Even the prototype of Winnetou, before he was called by this name, will be found here by the name of Inn-nu-woh. Here for your enjoyment, a short move narrated by Victor Epp.
