Summary
A 19th-century Brazilian rancher, born Francisco Manoel da Silva, turns to banditry after being driven from his land by drought and famine. As Cobra Verde, he is a solitary, vengeful figure, roaming the dusty backlands, shooting, drinking and womanizing. Hired as an overseer by a decadent sugar planter, he runs into trouble when his employer's three daughters wind up pregnant. The local bigwigs ship da Silva off to Africa to administer the faltering slave trade, assuming he will not come back alive. He arrives to find the slavers' garrison deserted, and the King, apparently, gone mad. Cobra Verde however, is a special kind of diplomat, and before long he is training an army of amazons to launch a rebellion against the King
