Update to Indian post from December 2010

In 2010, I posted how surprised I was at how many people in Europe know so much about the stories of Native American time passed, every once in a while the topic pops up again..and here is the trail of authors that have acquainted Bulgarians with our Wild West history:

Vinatu – the popular Indian movie based on the book by Karl May, that Bulgarians like to watch

James Fenimore Cooper (the popular American who writes about Native American Indians – he wrote the Last of the Mohicans) (1789 – 1851)

From there, we come to the German writer Karl May – a well-known German writer who wrote many popular books about the American wild west, amongst other writings (1842 – 1912)

Which leads us to the author Thomas Mayne Reid– An Irish-American novelist who wrote about the untamed Wild West (1818-1883)
