Summary The Gaucho and his men take over the City of the Miracle, carousing and planning to steal from the shrine there. A Mexican mountain girl falls for him and fights every woman who looks his way. The Gaucho tries to seduce the Girl of the Shrine, but her innocence and piety, combined with a miracle cure when he is infected with leprosy, reform him. When an evil gang threatens to execute the priest and the Girl of the Shrine, the Gaucho saves them at the last moment with a diversionary cattle stampede and rides off with his mountain girl
