An amazing book written and photographed by an amazing man, Carl Hiebert, who after traveling the world and indulging his passion for adventure sports, from scuba-diving to sky-diving, was suddenly made a paraplegic by a freak hang-gliding accident. After two months in recovery and two weeks in rehabilitation, he place a GONE FISHING sign on his hospital door and, with the help of a friend, made his way to a farmer's field where a single-seat ultralight aircraft was waiting. Within two years of his accident, he opened a flight school and became Canada's first paraplegic ultralight flight instructor. In 1986 he became the first Canadian to fly across Canada in an ultralight. Hi epic two-month, 5,000 flight concluded at Expo '86 in Vancouver and raised over $100,000 for the Canadian Paraplegic Association. A truly inspirational tale of human potential.
