An inexperienced boy in the original Lonesome Dove story, Newt Dobbs is a man by the time his real father, the legendary Texas Ranger Woodrow Call, gives him his best horse and his last name.
Newt Call (Scott Bairstow) sets out to seek his fortune in the Montana territory and encounters a series of events that change his life.
Saving Ida Grayson (Diahann Carroll) from desperadoes and renegade Indian attacks, Newt enters Curtis Wells, a small town where sentiments are divided over whether or not the advancing Intercontinental Railroad should be welcomed.
After helping her reunite with her Army scout husband, Aaron Grayson (Billy Dee Williams) and befriending Buffalo Bill Cody (Dennis Weaver), Newt meets Clay Mosby (Eric McCormack), an embittered ex-Confederate colonel with a dark secret who becomes his rival in love and adventure.
It’s an epic new beginning for one of America’s most beloved Western sagas as Newt Call steps out of the shadow of the renowned father to create his own legend.
