From the cover: “When Sam and Geoffrey joined their father, Professor Leigh, in Wiltshire for the school holidays, they hoped they would be able to help him find water in the camp on the Hill of the Ring, thus proving the Professor’s theory that it was King Arthur’s last camp of refuge. In fact they and their young friends discover a lot more than they could have expected: that it isn’t enough to put all one’s trust in science, that there is much to be learnt from local traditions and countrymen like old Shepherd Gumm, the water-diviner, and above all never to underestimate the power of magic.”
