HillShadow is a poetic response to a journey through the book of I Samuel, one of the most dramatic and tragic pieces of literature ever written. The setting is a time of extreme civil, economic, and political turmoil; a period of terror and uncertainty with a recurring theme of the inherent struggle between fathers and sons. The photographs are scenes from my surroundings in East Tennessee.

About the Author

Kenner Beckley
createaha Knoxville, TN, United States
I am a writer, photographer, an award-winning television producer and a former minister. In addition to my commercial work, I have contributed to several published devotional collections. In Rainer Maria Rilke’s Letters to a Young Poet, Rilke’s famous words of advice (to all artists) got my attention: “Go within and scale the depths of your being from which your very life springs forth”. Born and raised in Appalachia, I have read and written poetry from my earliest memory. I have also been taught the Bible since before I could speak. And I started working in television as a teenager because of a visual gift. This book is my first attempt at combining all these elements: poetry, the Bible, photography, and Appalachia. These are the things I discovered in the deep.
