An Army patrol warns Favor not to cross Pawnee lands as a fight is brewing with the Army. As Favor with Nolan travels to the fort they encounter Chief Ogalla who realizes the Pawnee cannot defeat the whites. Ogalla wants peace but can't sell the idea to his tribe, so he arranges to be imprisoned at the fort. They find it undermanned awaiting reinforcements with one officer. The Pawnee announce they have six soldiers they will trade unharmed for Ogalla. Col. Hiller asks Favor and Nolan to enlist as a captain and scout for three days to make the trade. Ogalla will be traded for six troopers the Indians are holding, hoping the deal will pacify the tribe, especially when he lies to the tribe that the fort is well-manned. Favor and Nolan help negotiate the deal, and they set out returning to the fort with the troopers who happen to be deserters which the Pawnee already know making them suspicious. A deserter escapes with Pete losing him but the Pawnee find and torture him learning Ogalla ... Written by chipe
