EL Tigre was John’s first novel. It is the multiple-award-winning saga of a Prussian aristocrat in the post- Napoleonic Era that follows Johann Heinrich von Manfred from his entrance at 10 years of age to the Military Academy, through his ensuing travels and adventures in France, the Pyrenees, Spain, Florida, Georgia, Texas, and Old California. He saves the leader of a gypsy band, fights for Carlos, the Pretender to the Spanish Throne, helps Houston free Texas, saves the life of a Spanish Don, marries the daughter, participates in the Mexican War and discovers gold in the turbulent days of the ’49 gold rush to establish the second bank in San Francisco.
The action is fast and the romance is tender.
