They confidently saunter into the town of Summit with the intention of abducting a rich man's kid for a quick ransom. They chose the town since the locals are "as undeleterious and self-satisfied a class of peasantry as ever clustered around a Maypole". The boys figure that the casual abduction of the busy rich man's son will go uncontested. No fear of lynch mobs, no self-righteous townsfolk with tracking dogs, not even a pesky sheriff to show up and say "put that kid back!" What could go wrong, right?
