The intoxicating notion of free land draws characters to Texas during the early period of Stephen F. Austins colony, including the family of young Leander Wilhite.

When a yellow fever epidemic takes his family, Leander finds himself the owner of over six thousand acres of cotton-growing land. The responsibility matures him beyond his years. The community of Monaville looks to Leander for leadership. He becomes a ranger, chasing Comanches and attempting to protect his neighbors. With the fall of the Alamo, his company joins Sam Houston at San Jacinto.

Later, Leander and his community become embroiled in the national debate over slavery issues. The birth of his mulatto son intensifies long-strained friendships, and the American Civil War heats to a boiling point. A Texas Destiny: The Saga Begins dusts off old tales that were long ago dropped from the history books.

It follows the beloved characters the General, the Colonel, Momma Mae, and Blue, and reveals what made them the individuals they later became. Fictional and historical figures are imaginatively intertwined as Austin, Houston, Bowie, Rose, Zuber, the notorious Pamela Mann, and the entire cast play out their parts on a giant stage called Texas.
