Story Summary

Young Willie can't fathom why anyone would like geese but he does like Mother Tipton, the local goose-woman. When he accompanies her on her journey across the bay to sell her feathers, they are overtaken by a fog and driven far off coarse. Mother Tipton's skill and the instincts of the geese steer them safely to dry land, giving Willie a new respect for Mother Tipton's gaggle.
