The boy has the gift for witching, his grandfather said, as he followed the old man across the open ground with his small forked stick pointed outward just as he saw his grandfather do. When his grandpa stopped with his stick pointing downward, indicating the presence of water below, the boy stopped and let his stick point toward the ground too. After all, his grandfather was well known for finding water in areas that seemed impossibly dry. Despite the naysaying of educated people, many good wells in the area stood as a testament to his water witching skills.
The boy grew up and continued the family tradition of dowsing, but replacing the forked stick with two copper divining rods that involuntarily cross when he locates a water source below ground. People scoff at his unscientific method of deciding where to drill a water well but I don't, because the water witcher with his divining rods is responsible for the high-volume water well on our land where some said there was no water to be found.
