This is a great book. I had read it many years ago in a different language (Romanian translation) and it was a pleasure to read it again. The translation was very good.
I'm really surprised that the book is not as popular in the US as it is in Europe (especially as it is about the Wild West).
It's certainly worth reading (at any age!).

Attempting to shed the label of greenhorn, Old Shatterhand pits his strength, sharpshooting skills, and wiley ways against all challengers, man or beast. At times the intricate descriptions and scenarios can become a bit tedious. Rest assured Shatterhand's aura will protect him as he strives to cultivate his friendship with the noble Winnetou. These noble heroes inhabit a realm not unlike the American west. It's a ride you cannot resist.

I love these books! They were some of the first "real" books I read as a child, thanks to my parents, and my love for the traditions and culture of Native Americans can be traced directly back to these novels, with their tales of the noble warriors and proud peoples of the American West. I read all the Winnetou books (a couple of times) as a young girl of 12. I was a tomboy back then, and wanted sooo much to ride out with the heroes of these tales, and be a part of it all. It's a pity the books aren't more popular in the America that Karl May writes about, and that they're not more well-known. Perhaps the problem is in just getting better translations.

Fair warning: There's a lot of Mary-Sue-ing going on a century before there even was a Mary Sue.

What you need to understand about these books is that they were written in a pseudo-documentary style.

Karl May used the first person perspective and many of his readers in the 1890s understood Charlie/Old Shatterhand to be Karl May (Charlie is the English form of Karl).

In reality Karl May only ever visited the US years after he wrote these books.

Karl May has written many more books about his main heroes Old Shatterhand and Winnetou as well as a whole different set where Charlie travels to the Middle East (where he is known as Kara Ben Nemsi).

But if you can accept that Old Shatterhand is perfect at almost everything, these books are really enjoyable. You truly get a sense of the wild west shortly after the Civil War and you can actually follow their travels on a map (Karl May was very precise in that regard).

What you also need to know, is that this is not a John Wayne kind of adventure. The Indians (as they were called back then) are not necessarily the baddies, and the white settlers are not necessarily the good guys. But it's also not just the other way around. You can count on the fact though that no Apache will be a bad guy and the Comanches will usually not be good guys. ;-)

I gave up. This book is the worse case of Mary Sueing I have ever seen, reads like some sort of horrible fan-fiction (please note that this is the good translation version).
Your a pretty good shot; here have this great gun.
This is the best horse I have ever seen but can't be broken; you broke it so you can have it.
Wow you laid out that tough guy with one punch, and that other tough guy with one punch; Lets call you Shatterhand.
Only a fool or the really experienced would take on a bull buffalo; It charged you but you took it out with one shot.
If you encounter a grizzly, best thing you can do is run; wow you killed it with a knife.

And on and on and on.... Not even a fourth of the way through and I can't stand anymore, tee hee.
