Bill Esterling Left Behind
"A Locust Leaves Its Shell" is the final work of beloved Huntsville
Times columnist Bill Esterling. The second book of what was to
be a trilogy of favorite human interest columns Bill had written over the years
was published just shortly before his death from cancer.
The book he left behind for us is a warm-hearted look at
life in the South. It's divided into nine parts: Getting Personal,
Looking Back, Notable People, Making a Difference, Blood Runs Thick, Liberators,
Rambling Thoughts, Inspirations, and Looking Around. Mr. Esterling's
unique look at life made him a favorite with Times' readers and his
talent for seeing the best in a busy world taught us all a valuable lesson.
