Mail-order bride Billie Jo Mingo travels west with her pet crow Pecker to meet her husband, a man she assumes is too fat and old to get any local woman to marry him.
Wealthy cattle baron Jason Lee Emory assumes he has married a gently-reared lady to help him raise his orphaned daughter.
When the two meet, Billie Jo is stunned to find that her husband is the handsomest man she has ever seen. Jace is shocked that his lady is really a scrappy, redheaded backwoods waif. The feathers fly, especially when Pecker puts his beak’s worth in.
