Tex gets a letter from the other end of the world... It's been written by an Argentinian army officer, Ricardo Mendoza, an old acquaintance of his and Montales': the man is asking Tex for help and advice for a tricky mission, where they'll have to go inside the Patagonian indios land, negotiate the release of a group of prisoners and punish the perpetrators of a bloody raid. Knowing Mendoza as a honorable man, and convinced that their expedition's ultimate goal will be peace and the reestablishing of good relations with the Natives of the Pampas, Tex accepts. Along with Kit, he will guide the Gauchos and Native scouts that accompany the military column. Things get complicated, though, when a new general-in-chief becomes the commander of the Argentinian army. His policy, now, is not peace, but war, until the complete extermination of the Patagonian indios! Tex and Mendoza will have to face a dramatic dilemma. What will they choose?
