When her cousin Santos Luzardo returns to the plains in order to reclaim his land and cattle, he reluctantly faces off against Do¤a Barbara, and their battle becomes simultaneously one of violence and seduction. All of the action is set against the stunning backdrop of the Venezuelan prairie, described in loving detail. ...
