The art of dowsing or divining, the tracing of underground water, minerals, pipes or cables, has fascinated people for centuries and today there is renewed interest in the subject. This book sets out to prove that anyone can dowse, and it also dispels the commonly accepted myths that dowsing is a gift enjoyed by a few practioners, that it is always associated with water and that hazel twigs are the only media. The author encourages the novice to enter into the art with 'light-hearted seriousness' and stresses that dowsing is an occupation to be enjoyed for the pleasure of exploring an ancient skill in the open air.
