Following the epic struggle between two cousins for an estate in Venezuela, the novel examines the conflict between town and country, violence and intellect, male and female.

When her cousin Santos Luzardo returns to the plains in order to reclaim his land and cattle, he reluctantly faces off against Dona Barbara, and their battle becomes simultaneously one of violence and seduction
