Argentinian President Sarmiento sent this soldier, L.V. Mansilla (1831-1913), son of an important General, as a chief of the border against the Indians in Río Cuarto, southwards of Córdoba in 1869. The events he lived in those days made this book, first published in 1877. He's got a gift for narrative and he describes, mixing anecdotes and witty sentences, his peaceful task in Indian land. Two monks, four officers and a group of soldiers went with him. This book achieved a prize in the International Geographical Congress in Paris.
