Romulo Gallegos, one of the best South American writers, splendidly describes the Venezuelan plains and the passionate love that emerges there. Dona Barbara -a ruthless and tough woman once hurt by men- symbolizes the wildness of the plains and Santos Luzardo -the polite and sensitive doctor from the city- the opposite side of the same coin. They meet at the plains and develop a wonderful story of love and power, surrounded by the most beautiful landscapes of the world: The venezuelan plains.
You wont be able to put it down!
