Burned Alive: A True Story (Hardcover)
Burned Alive is the harrowing true story of David Poletz, who was horribly burned in an industrial accident in 1992.
The story charts his course as a young man working his way up in the trades at an asphalt plant in Alberta, every bit a success story until the unthinkable happens.
His life and body shattered, David looked life and death square in the face and through will, determination and a few good friends, pulled his way through the toughest times to make his life better.
David hopes that by reading his story, others who may face similar challenges or who just like a good story, will find in these pages some hope, and maybe even some enlightenment.
If this cautionary but ultimately uplifting story of one man's struggle to overcome near-impossible odds can help or save just one person, then the effort to create it was more than worth it.
