Set in the Vermont countryside, Water Witches is the tale of the clash between progress and tradition, science and magic.
In the midst of a nightmarish New England drought, cynical ski industry lobbyist Scottie Winston is trying to get a large ski resort the permits it needs to tap an already beleaguered river for snow. His wife, his little girl, and his sister-in-law—dowsers or "water witches"—all hope to stop him, however, in this gentle, comic, life-affirming novel.
