“Peace in the Valley” Treaty between the Kitchens Ranch and Cochise, Tucson, 1873, 40X60 oil on linen by JoAnn Peralta
Pete Kitchen brought wife, Rosa Verdugo from Mexico to settle in Arizona. Pete invested in agricultural farming and livestock. Rosa’s brother Ronquillo helped. They sold food to Calvary soldiers by contract with the U.S. government. Apache attacks were offset by Pete’s marksmanship skills.
Even kindness became a virtue with its own reward. The Kitchen’s tended to all injured. Once, after an attack, a young boy was found. Rosa treated his injuries. Cochise fearing his son dead, found to his great surprise his son alive. 
A treaty was sealed between both parties in gratitude for the Kitchen’s, and Apache raids by the Chiricahua ceased on the ranch and along the Tucson road, named by Pete. A beaded purse was gifted to Rosa and beaded moccasins to Pete with Cochise’s name inscribed. 
The t.v. show High Chaparral by David Dortort, and Kent McCray producer, was loosely modeled after the Kitchen’s.
