This elegant book recounts the classic tale of the Maid of Orleans who terrified the English, and was a talisman to the French, and remained an enigma to everyone after her death. Claiming to have heard voices, and commanding the French army, this biography traces the life of Joan of Arc from her birth to death and the trials that cleared her name after her death. 64 Colorful pages, softcover.
Around 1412, a baby girl was born in the village of Domrémy who would change France forever. A farmer’s daughter, she seemed destined for an unremarkable life. But as the dramatic narrative of this World History Biography reveals, Joan’s life was anything but ordinary. By the age of 13, she knew her destinyto drive the English invaders from France. By 17, she had led an army to victory at Orléans. Captured in battle, and too poor to be ransomed, Joan was burned at the stake before her 20th birthday.
