Reviews of Zephyr of Time

"Whether he is cleaning out an old cabin or pondering a headstone on the windswept prairie, Joe connects us with sensitivity to those who have gone before us. His insightful questions help me to ponder and reflect upon my own place in the flow of things. His word paintings share his deep love and awe for the beauty and wonder of the West. This is a book that I will read and re-read, and share with friends." Jan J. in Montana  

"If you aren't familiar with the writings of Joseph Colwell, now is the time to start. Joe has a way with words that will place you right there in the story. I love his down to earth easy reading style. Joe's love of nature is so brilliantly captured in his writings. I look forward to enjoying each and every one of his books."
Anne M. in Illinois

"Truly, the verbiage used...assimilates the voices within nature.  Your book seems to capture that flow --- from nature through the soul, out as words."  Sara in Utah.

     "Loved this book! The author took me on a different journey each day with his reflections of time. His passion for Colorado, the land and his own past kept me interested from cover to cover. Looking forward to more of his writing." Donna in South Carolina.
