The Violent Land free pdf From the great Brazilian author, an exotic tale of greed, madness, and a dispute between two powerful families over land on the cocoa-rich coast of Bahia The siren song of the lush, cocoa-growing forests of Bahia lures them all the adventurers, the assassins, the gamblers, the brave and beautiful women. It is not a gentle song, but a song of greed, madness, and blood. It is a song that promises riches untold, or death for the price of a swig of rum . . . a song most cannot resist until it is too late not Margot, the golden blond prostitute who comes for love- not Cabral, the unscrupulous lawyer who works for one of the Cacao colonels- and not Juca, whose ruthless quest to reap the jungle s harvest plants the seeds of his own destruction.
