In Doña Barbara, author Rómulo Gallegos weaves together the story of the Venezuelan llano (prairie), two feuding cousins, and the lives of ranchers, cowboys, thieves and villains, all of whom operate around the treacherously beautiful Doña Barbara, who’s a rancher…and a witch. Doña Bárbara is considered a masterpiece of Venezuelan literature.
