Summary
"The book chronicles the beginning of hydrogeology in France in the mid-nineteenth century. Abbe J.-B. Paramelle got his start searching for groundwater on a karst plateau in 1818, and by 1856 had found water in more than 10,000 places in France with a 90% success rate. He wrote this book to describe his observations and methods"--
