About the Author:

Erwin Carle (Pseudonym Erwin Rosen ; 7 June 1876 in Karlsruhe; 21 February 1923 in Hamburg) was a German Author and Journalist. Carle was enrolled in college in Munich. Being nothing but a prankster he had to terminate his studies. To save his family from this embarrassment he was sent to America being 19 at the time. There he quickly learned to stand on his own two feet, taking on any job he could find. He worked as farmhand in Texas, Apothecary, dishwasher, translator for the German Western Post in St. Louis, and as Journalist in San Francisco. In the year 1898 he found himself as part of the US Army reporting on the battle of Signal Hill in Cuba.This stage of his life was documented in his novel Der deutsche Lausbub in Amerika which translates as "The German prankster in America". Having returned to Germany and subsequently trying to escape a failed relationship with his "jewel" as he called her, he joined the French Foreign Legion signing his 5 year contract on October 6 1905 He became Legionnaire 17889. Fortunately, after 2 years, he was able to escape and eventually published his experience as In the Foreign Legion (1910)
