    Fascinating!

    I found "The Boy who Saw True" to be a very entertaining book. It totally draws you in as the reader and you develop an understanding of the boy's gift in the same way that he develops his understanding of it. A quick and excellent read.

    Energy Medicine - Ph.D.'s Perspective

    The fascinating life of a young boy who was gifted since birth with the ability to see auras and spirits. Taken from his dairy of many years beginning January 1, 1885, the young boy eventually grows to manhood, and along with him we get to experience life through his eyes. His casual way of speaking, although of the Victorian age and dialect, is delightful. He refers to knowing that something is amiss with someone when his or her ¿lights¿ are muddy or dirty. He recounts many incidents of getting himself into trouble with his clairvoyance, was he would report seeing disincarnate beings, or spirits. An authentic account of a young gifted boy validates so much of what many can feel but do not see, as he saw. Before his death, the author agreed to allow his dairies to be published after his death as long as he was not identified, so we do not know the name of this delightful soul but his simple book allows us to share his essence and understanding.
