Senorita Scorpion - Les Savage

When George Douglas is attacked by Comanches and his mine caves in, you have a classic hidden mine and lost property scenario.

200 years later, with the Douglas family finally having dug their way out, Senorita Scorpion starts raiding.

The blonde, blue-eyed, black masked bandida has a secret it seems, and there is a reason she is targeting the monopolistic land owner of the region.

...she's lightining with a knife or a whip or a gun. Tall, blonde, rides like fury... the monopolist tells Chisos Owens, the man he wants to hire to hunt her down, and a man whose land he also took in the past.

This, to me, doesn't read like it was written in 1944, which is probably why the magazine guys of the time edited his moder modern relationships.

A pretty fair tale. I definitely want to find some more.
