"Where Purple Shadows Fall" is a book of poems that dares to tackle head-on the subject of what it means to be human. Something John E. Cashwell does with tenderness and inexhaustible curiosity. From his eulogy of the Native American Indian ("Above the Cliffs") to his love of country ("America") and the quiet moments of spirituality in-between ("Mother of God") there is an earned respect of life and the will to be free in each writing. "Where Purple Shadows Fall" is a collection we expect you to return to again and again. For while the author has many in his library of works to choose from, the forty poems offered here are among his favorites
