This is a free book. I have not read it yet so I can't really comment on the content. But I would hope it has some good stuff inside.

4.0 out of 5 stars 19th century European author's earnest autobiography 16 April 2014
By Leslie Grey McCawley - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I respect and appreciate all autobiographies, as I think it takes great courage to present your life to the world.

My particular fascination is with 19th century Europe, and his life experience was edifying and worth reading.

3.0 out of 5 stars My Life and My Efforts 29 Oct. 2012
By Privacy preferred - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The translator doubts whether everything Karl May says about his grandmother, for instance, is true.
The description of his life at least makes clear that he had read numerous books about geography, the American West, Middle Eastern cultures, Islam (Sunny and Shiites), plants, horses, etc. He had experience with the Lutheran and Catholic Church. I think that is why Karl May could make the adventures of Kara ben Nemsi seem real and paint him as a very peace loving and God fearing man, which he himself probably was.
