Shelburn native publishes first book ‘Adventure Walks and Monkey Talks’

News Release

---- — Shelburn native Dickson Hunley published his first book, “Adventure Walks and Monkey Talks,” in late October.  

The book details the life lessons that a man learns while spending time caring for and bonding with a 4-year-old boy. Some of the lessons are deep and thought provoking while others are whimsical and will make readers laugh. All of the lessons are aimed to teach how to make life and the lives of others better.

“It was a challenging, wonderful, growing and learning experience writing this book. I hope that [readers] take away from reading this book the same positive feelings and personal growth that I got while writing it,” Hunley said.

Hunley grew up in Shelburn where he went to grade school at Shelburn Elementary before attending and graduating from North Central High School in Farmersburg. He now lives in Fort Myers, Fla., where he works as a business consultant and is a contributing writer for Spot Magazine.
