Few people know that Mark Twain wrote a major work on Joan of Arc. Still fewer know that he considered it not only his most important, but also his best work. Twain spent twelve years in research and many months in France doing archival work, and then made several attempts until he felt he finally had the story he wanted to tell. He reached his conclusion about Joan's unique place in history only after studying in detail accounts written by both sides: the French, for whom she raised an army to return the Dauphin to the throne, and the English, who fought the French in the Hundred Year's War and were ultimately Joan's executioners. This is a fascinating and remarkably accurate biography of the life and mission of Joan of Arc told by one of this country's greatest storytellers.

Beautiful. Informative. Funny. Enlightening. Brilliant. Inspiring. And more awesome superlatives. It's Twain. It's Joan of Arc. The author and his subject are a match made in literary heaven. I'm so glad that I found this gem. It applied flesh to the centuries old legend of a young woman on the edge. Thanks to both Twain and Joan for this magnificent tale.

I am so pleased that the Joco library will now carry this exceptional tale of Joan of Arc!

This is my favorite book written by Mark Twain. Listen and enjoy; however, it would be great if the library could pick up a written version. It is an excellent book and a classic!

It is difficult to find for purchase. I was able to pick up my edition through a Christian homeschooling website.
