Peter Golding memoirs

Dowsing for Water - The Complete Practical Guide

With colour photographs and original diagrams by artist Helen Gee.

"This book fills a huge gap. There are many introductory books on learning to dowse, and some outstanding books by advanced practitioners, but very little on how you make the enormous transition from enthusiastic amateur dowser to accomplished water diviner. The publication of this book is therefore to be celebrated."
Ced Jackson, Malvern Dowsers
