It is 1847: the celebrated Civil War General William Tecumseh Sherman is a mere lieutenant, serving as adjutant to the military governor of newly-conquered California, foremost prize of the recent Mexican War. For the next three years Sherman will enjoy in an intimate friendship with Angustias de la Guerra, La Doņa of Monterey. So even while she and her brothers actively resist the American takeover, La Doņa is still the charming ambassadress par excellence of her culture to the conquering Americans. Paramount, however, for Lieutenant Sherman through all these trials and amusements is that he must employ extreme strategies in order to resist his enchantment by La Doņa, whose de la Guerra family owns a half million of the finest acres in all California, and whose husband is dying.
