Tout à la fois roman de moeurs, satire socio-politique et récit d'aventures, ce livre picaresque raconte l'histoire d'une révolte paysanne contre la politique de reboisement des terres communales instaurée par la dictature de Salazar au pouvoir dans les années 30. Autour de Manuel Louvadeus, ancien chercheur de diamants au Brésil, magnifique personnage d'insoumis, les rebelles vont s'unir, "hurlant comme des loups affamés", pour garder les maigres terres que l'Etat veut leur confisquer. La répression sera sans pitié.
