Shelby’s mom brought him to the swamps of southern Louisiana when he was nine years old, and immediately Shelby knew he had found home. As a child, he would often stay in the swamp for days and weeks at a time, sleeping high up in old Cypress trees and living off of what the swamp provided. Eventually, Shelby made a career of it, pulling sunken trees from the swamp and selling them to local log buyers. He has a heart of gold and offers his help to anyone who needs it. Shelby is equal parts big kid and superhero: scared of little but excited by much. In short, Shelby’s one of a kind.
