In Paul Hebert’s The Sun Above the Clouds, travel back to an age of taming the raw, Canadian land by hand, and follow through to the present, as Paul tames his soul, through tragedy to personal triumph. After suffering through an early life of alcoholism and abuse, Paul had found his calling, crawling up electrical poles as he had seen an Indian do when he was a kid. He loved his career as a power lineman. But brawls in bars and blackouts haunted him. Through sheer determination, Paul brought himself to find patience for others and love in life–for heli-skiing and for the woman he was about to marry. But just days before his honeymoon in Hawaii, Paul was struck by 28,000 volts—the force of a nuclear explosion—in a work accident, nearly killing him, and sentencing him to a life of surgeries, depression, near-death experiences, and the loss of both feet and his right hand. Find out how, through the love and help of others, Paul learned not only to love himself again, but to help thousands of other people through speaking and writing, and to once again be truly happy.
