From the Ashes
- My Story of Being Métis, Homeless, and Finding My Way
- Written by: Jesse Thistle
- Narrated by: Jesse Thistle
- Length: 9 hrs and 55 mins
In this extraordinary and inspiring debut memoir, Jesse Thistle, once a high-school dropout and now a rising Indigenous scholar, chronicles his life on the streets and how he overcame trauma and addiction to discover the truth about who he is. Abandoned by his parents as a toddler, Jesse Thistle briefly found himself in the foster-care system with his two brothers, cut off from all they had known. Eventually, the children landed in the home of their paternal grandparents, whose tough-love attitudes quickly resulted in conflicts.
Eye-opening and riveting
