Description: All Gregory Scofield ever wanted to do was to belong. Born into a Metis family of Cree, Scottish, English and French descent, but never told of his heritage, Gregory knew he was different, his feelings of displacement only heightened by a family life marked by poverty, illness, abuse and loss. Separated from his mother when he was just five, sent to live with strangers and extended family, he tried to make sense of a world which often didn't make any sense at all. As he grew, clinging to the edge of an already misunderstood society, Gregory faced his own diversity and rejection from the Native community, who were unable to accept him for himself.

This is Gregory Scofield's traumatic, tender and redeeming story of his fight to discover himself -- a young man who has become an acclaimed, award-winning poet, celebrated for his sensual imagery and lyrical use of Cree words and rhythms. He is a gifted writer, inspired by his heritage, his "brothers and sisters, " and his art. Thunder Through My Veins is proof of that art, a story of wholeness, of a young man finally able to harmonize often very disparate voices into one joyful song. Universal in its themes and in the delicate but powerful emotional moments that speak to all readers, Thunder Through My Veins is a beautiful, painful and tremendously hopeful book.
