Amos Kincaid is the son of a dowser Ð a person gifted in knowing how to ÒfindÓ water deep in the ground. As a young person, Amos doesnÕt reveal his gift to others; heÕs not sure he wants the burden. But through his experiences growing up and crossing the Oregon Trail, Amos learns about lifeÕs harsh realities, especially the pain in losing loved ones. As he cares for those around him, Amos comes to accept his dowsing fate. This epic novel is a fascinating period piece about the westward expansion and one manÕs destiny as he searches for love and family.
