Additional Details:
Handsome Pio Pico Flores, romantic adventurer, loved an American cowgirl. Before he could speak his love she married an American rancher. Pio organized an insurrecto army and attacked their ranch! The siege lasted four days. In desperation the girl's husband challenged Pio to a personal duel to end the battle. Gunfire stopped while the two young men fought with blades. Pio killed the husband--but had to flee from the outraged widow! What's more, she pursued him all over Mexico, determined to slay him. She financed detectives to search for him. She offered rewards. Not for 20 years did she give up, but Pio had just disappeared. Then one day, up to her ranch home rode a handsome middle-aged gentleman, who bowed low to the still beautiful lady and said, "I am Pio Pico Flores. I have loved you all these years." They were immediately married, and they lived happily together for nearly 30 years more.
