Regarded by many as the most luminous example of Twain's work, this historical novel chronicles the French heroine's life, as purportedly told by her longtime friend--Sieur Louis de Conte. A panorama of stirring scenes recount Joan's childhood in Domremy, the story of her voices, the fight for Orleans, the splendid march to Rheims, and much more. An amazing record that disclosed Twain's unrestrained admiration for Joan's nobility of character, the book is matchless in its workmanship--one of Twain's lesser-known novels that will charm and delightfully surprise his admirers and devotees.

    " Mark Twain (if such can be said in this case) at his finest. "

    " The only reason I can surmise that this work doesn't get more attention is because Joan of Arc is so different from Twain's other books. But it truly is a thing of beauty, his lack of satiric bite and surprisingly pro-French (or maybe just pro-Joan and the force of her will) bent notwithstanding. It's a thoroughly engrossing story, with a decade of research to buttress its narrative. "

    " I really wanted to learn more about Joan of Arc, but this book was too lengthy and bogged down in so many details that weren't even related I lost interest. I guess I didn't give it the time that I needed read it before book club. Not a quick read. I'll have to approach it again when I feel less busy. When will that be? "

    " magical - mark twain's self-proclaimed 'best book' - took 12 years of research to complete "
