Amana - Four manly lumberjacks living the bachelor life in their northern Wisconsin camp seem perfectly happy tucked away from civilization - and women. But, when a mail order bride is mistakenly sent for, everything changes. Join Minnesota Slim, Dirty Bob, Muskrat, Moonlight and The Kid as they tell the wonders and woes of being a lumberjack in love with songs like "The Bachelor's Prayer," "Stupid Love," and "Could It Be Cabin Fever?"
