Adam Ponipee, the eldest of seven brothers living in the Oregon frontier, goes to town to get supplies… and a wife. He successfully convinces Milly to marry him. Only when they return to his backwoods home does she discover that she has six brothers-in-law who would be unscrupulously living with them. Milly sets out to refine the uncouth siblings, who are inspired by Adam to get wives of their own. After reading about the Romans’ capture of the Sabine women, Adam proposes an unconventional plan to help his brothers get the girls of their dreams.
