    1. Danas je možda ne bih ocenila peticom, ali prvih deset puta kad sam je čitala još kako bih, pa nema ni smisla da omladinsku književnost ocenjujem iz sadašnje matore perspektive. Obožavala sam je iako je neujednačena (smenjuju se izuzetno uzbudljiva poglavlja i neke priče koje su se slobodno mogle i izostaviti), a vidim da nije izgubila draž ni za sadašnje klince: sinak čita bez daha, nosi u krevet da čita bar dok ne završi poglavlje, a sutradan vidimo na podu izniklo indijansko selo [...]



    2. I don't know why it works again after almost 45 years but it does. I couldn't say what the book's (or its author's) secret is, nevertheless it still is an excellent read.




    3. This was a good occasion with this book to recall my favorite novels from childhood. Winnetou, Old Surehand and other such stories from the wild west, written by the master of this genre, Karl May, were all part of my first few novels I have read. And of course I have loved them and like many children, I imagine myself (sometimes even playing with my brother and other children) how it is to be Winnetou or a white hunter in the Great Plains.The premise is extremely simple and usual for children n [...]


    4. Mit "Der Schatz im Silbersee" von 1955 wird nun nach "Winnetou" die zweite großartige Produktion des Westdeutschen Rundfunks in dieser Reihe veröffentlicht. Die beiden Blutsbrüder Winnetou und Old Shatterhand jagen hinter Cornel Brinkley her: Der skrupellose Ganove versucht mit aller Macht, den Schatz im Silbersee zu finden, und um an den Geheimplan des Schatzes zu kommen, geht er über Leichen. Winnetou und Old Shatterhand werden bei ihrer Verfolgungsjagd immer wieder von verfeindeten Indian [...]



    5. Puedo entender la importancia de este libro para los jóvenes alemanes o centroeuropeos que crecieron con May entonces y ahora pero lo cierto es que las cosas que habían funcionado para mí en otros libros clásicos de aventuras no carburan en este. Las descripciones del terreno son farragosas (yo diría que sí que se nota lo de que nunca estuvo en el Oeste) y las de los personajes tan exageradas que bordean lo ridículo; cada uno de los protagonistas que presenta May es, mágicamente, una per [...]


    6. After numerous unsuccessful attempts to read Native American advanture stories in my childhood - giving them up after 50 pages or so - I was completely convinced they are not for me. Browsing my Kindle a few weeks ago I decided to give it one more try and to my own biggest surprise, I found this particular novel quite entertaining. My only problem was I think there were waaay to many minor, yet important characters in the story to follow, but other than this, in my opinion it's completely entert [...]


    7. Insgesamt eine solide Abenteuergeschichte ohne Längen und ab der zweiten Hälfte, in der die Gruppen endlich in den einsamen Gegenden des Wilden Westens angekommen sind, wieder absolut nach meinem Geschmack. Insbesondere die Reise durch die Berge besticht wieder durch zauberhafte Landschaftsbeschreibungen.Der Hobble Frank ist hier deutlich erträglicher als im Bärenjäger, und auch sonst fällt mir kaum etwas Negatives ein.


    8. Нещо, което прочетох като мъничка. Една от първите книги, които майка ми даде. И една от първите, в които се влюбих. Препоръчвам на всеки с борбен и приключенски дух.


    9. The story is good, but this was translated by a non-English speaker. The grammar is not quite English sometimes. Nevertheless, I'll be looking for more Karl May books.


    10. Karl May va ramane intotdeauna autorul meu preferat de romane de aventura. Indiferent de unde, in ce timp are loc actiune, cu cine si in ce fel, cartile lui sunt spectaculoase.



    11. As a modern reader, I've found several "faults" with this book.For one, it is heavily plotted (versus naturally developing), and thus the author had to rely on a heavy dosage of deus ex machina. The characterization is overly black-and-white. There is only one female character in the cast, placed there to fulfil the damsel-in-distress role on a couple of occasions. :/HoweverI liked it. How so?Indeed, the novel abounds in convenient coincidences - always playing into the protagonists' hands, but [...]


    12. I was really happy to see that, after twenty or maybe even thirty years, they finally decided to reprint Karl May's books in Croatia. Although, so far, I am only aware of this one, I'm hoping there will be others so I can renew my collection - some of the older ones are really worn out.I was even happier to see that they decided to go with old translation because modern translations of books to Croatian are very often criminally bad. I haven't read this book before, but I've read some of Karl Ma [...]


    13. I had read this book twenty times by the time I finished fourth grade. It still brings back such sweet memories of sleepless reading nights during school vacation, followed by mornings when I waited for my parents to leave to work, so that I could add a hot sandwich to the joy of reading, while the sun marked a new and promising day. Oh those were the days!I loved the adventure, the characters, the story, the good old romanticism of good vs bad.Heartily recommended to kids and even nostalgic adu [...]


    14. Nog een Winnetou/Old Shatterhand boekje dat menig avond als voorleesboek de kinderkamer opluisterde. Iets minder vlot/snel/spannend dan "winnetou het opperhoofd der apachen", maar toch weer zeer vermakelijk met zijn algoede protagonisten en alslechte antagonisten. Howhg!



    15. German writer who wrote about the Wild West -- Janice at Loveland library mentioned this writer when we discussed Last Bus to Freedom
