"Continuum Impacts" are seminal works by some of the finest minds in Western thought that created a storm when they were first published, and continue to resonate in this new series. Strikingly designed to complement the controversial nature of the thoughts within, "Impacts" are essential reading for independent thinkers everywhere. Karl May's most popular work originally published in 1892 and influenced by Harriet Beecher Stowe, "Winnetou" is the story of a young Apache chief told by his white friend and blood-brother Old Shatterhand. The action takes place in the U.S. Southwest, in the latter half of the 1800s, where the Indian way of life is threatened by the first transcontinental railroad. Winnetou, the only Native Indian chief who could have united the various rival tribes to reach a settlement with the whites, is murdered. His tragic death foreshadows the death of his people. May's central theme here, as in much of his work, is the relationship between aggression, racism, and religious intolerance.
