Summary
Adam, the eldest of seven brothers, goes to town to get a wife. He convinces Milly to marry him that same day. They return to his backwoods home. Only then does Milly discover that Adam has six other brothers all living with him in his cabin. Milly sets out to reform the uncouth siblings, who are anxious to get wives of their own. Then, after reading a story, Adam develops an idea that will create the solution to his brothers' loneliness -- kidnap the women they want!
