In an exquisite English translation from the bestselling French edition, Joan of Arc: Her Story now appears for American readers. From the French peasant girl who led an army to the icon burned at the stake, Joan has been a blank slate on which thousands have written. Pernoud and Clin clear away the myths so that modern readers can see Joan as she was and include a glossary of important individuals, historical events and interpretations of Joan through the ages. Joan of Arc: Her Story is the thrilling life of a woman who obsesses us even to this day.
Règine Pernoud, a pioneer women's historian, was a member of the French Academy and founder of the Centre Jeanne d'Arc in Orleans.
Marie-Vèronique Clin is Director, Museum of the History of Medicine in Paris.
Jeremy Duquesnay Adams is Professor of History at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas.
This Joan of Arc makes you want to be there to witness it all!
