Gift Of Wings by Carl Hiebert

Gift Of Wings

Gift Of Wings: An Aerial Celebration Of Canada is the story about the triumph of the human spirit. Carl is paralyzed in a hang gliding accident. He can no longer do that which he loved, but he finds he can still fly an ultra-light. (Not much more than a hang glider with a snowmobile engine.) To show that his handicaps don’t limit his vision he decides to fly across all of Canada in his ultra-light. The photography is excellent, but I was equally impressed by his captions. They struck the right balance of length and interest. Often captions explain what you can clearly see. Hiebert’s gave interesting information about what was occurring underneath him.
