The Oil Prince 
by Herbert Windolf
Karl May (1842-1912) is the most-read German author of all time. With a unique sense of humor, he brought to life endearing characters that have captured hearts for more than a century. Both idealistic and romantic, his novels were originally known as ‘travel tales’, and have shaped the view of the post-Civil War American West for generations of Germans. They have been adapted for stage, movies, and even comic books. 

Rarely out of print since it was first published as a book in the German language in 1897, The Oil Prince is a companion piece to Winnetou, translated by David Koblick.
