This story begins in coastal Nova Scotia Canada, where a cormorant from England is in distress. Micheline, a junior high aged girl finds the seabird and takes it upon herself to rescue him. They fast become friends. She desperately tries to conceal her discovery from her recently separated parents. Miche manages to get the seabird to her mother's place near Peggy's Cove while she is away.

Encouraging the cormorant to take flight, Miche watches as this unique seabird embarks upon his mission to meet his cormorant cousins and fellow-seabird relatives up and down the coast of the Americas. During the arduous journey, the cormorant is helped along by kind oceanic strangers, who he notices are not so different from himself as revealed by Darwin's enduring theory of evolution.

Will Widget reach his ultimate destination of the Galapagos Islands to see for himself what Darwin saw? Will he ever see Micheline again? Embark on this sweet and ambitious tale of one bird's quest to find his true destiny.
