Of all his works, this was Twain's personal favorite. Drawing on years of research, one of America's greatest authors retells the moving story of the maid of Orleans, portraying Joan's mystical visions, military prowess, endurance of charges of witchcraft and heresy, and her martyrdom with authenticity, poignancy, and admiration. An often overlooked masterpiece! 455 pages, softcover from Ignatius.

Few people know that Mark Twain wrote a major work on St. Joan of Arc. Still fewer know that he considered it not only his most important but also his best work, spending 12 years in research and many months in France doing archival research. A book to inform and inspire its readers.
