Hailed as the father of the New Age movement, his works have been translated into dizens of languages, and he has received outpourings of acclaim from individuals, doctors, and spiritual leaders around the globe.

A Seer out of Season...

Drawing from his experience as Cayce's longtime associate, Dr. Harmon Bro has written the first-ever full-length biography of the gifted spiritualist. Long awaited by followers and skeptics alike, this definitive, intimate account tells the story of how an enigmatic Kentucky farm boy with no formal education became the soft-spoken seer who inspired so many. It is also the story of a man hounded by disbelievers who again and again branded him a charlatan--only to walk away stunned by his power.
