Tom and David--I read the article hurriedly, but there was no mention that May was inspired by James Fenimore Cooper's Leatherstocking novels, especially "The Last of the Mohicans."  Actually, he was rather ripping off Cooper.  It's been a while since I was interested in thinking about Cooper's politics.

I should add: A few years ago now, when on the SD Humanities Council, I was in Hill City for its film festival. A woman approached me about her and some others' working on republishing Karl May here in the US. She gave me a free copy of one of the novels. I've read a good bit about May over the years, of course, but none of his writings--including, still, the one she gave me, though I really need to get to it. I was aware of Hitler's love for them and other Western novels, as well as their popular in the totalitarian USSR.
