Based on the diary entries of a young Victorian with extraordinary supernatural talent, this is a naïve, insightful, funny, and moving account of a precocious young clairvoyant. Born with incredible powers, the anonymous author could see auras and spirits, yet failed to realise that other people were not similarly gifted. This remarkable book has become a paranormal classic.

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.

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.

The Boy Who Saw TrueThe Time Honored Classic of the ParanormalIntroduction, Afterword and Notesby Cyril ScottThis is an absolute must read for any seeker interested in the gift of seeing. A Victorian diary of a boy whose extraordinary talent is expressed over and over again in this well known metaphysical classic. I found myself completely enthralled as I turned page after page. The thing I found most remarkable was the simple everyday entry's of the mundane, but from one who clearly saw what lay hidden for most of us. The language is precious and takes me back to an era I am sure I was in at one point or another. I loved the July 10th entry where he talks about seeing dark things in the sky during a thunderstorm and was so frightened that he hid under his bed covers. I think seekers of all ages and all spiritual paths can gain a lot from this poignant yet simple account of God's gifts at their best.Love & Light,Riki Frahmann

I first read this book years ago, when I first became interested in the paranormal, and I have treasured it ever since.The book is the diary of a young boy who grows up in England in the Victorian Era. A sensitive boy who can see aura's, spirits and other lifeforms, he would today be described as an 'indigo' child. But in the strict British middle-class family in which he grows up, he quickly learns to keep his observations to himself.The text is almost exactly as he wrote it down, full of funny little spelling mistakes which don't hamper reading, but rather pull you into this little boys world and way of thinking. His unique view of Victorian society is subtly hilarious (due to the Victorian diet and stiff upper-lip attitude, everybody is constipated, and his father's 'lights' (aura) look distinctly muddy whenever the poor man is having trouble going to the bathroom again).His 'old soul' wisdom, coupled with the naivety of a young boy is utterly charming.If you would like an intimate look into the lives of people in this bygone era, seen through the eyes of a sensitive soul, this is a book for you.
