Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 Conté. 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.

Synopsis:

Completed when the author was nearly sixty, this fictional biography of the young French heroine is regarded by many as the most luminous example of Twain's work. He admired her nobility of character and viewed her as "the most innocent, the most lovely, the most adorable child the ages have produced." Purportedly written by Sieur Louis de Conte (Joan's page and secretary), the biography is marvelous in its pageantry and its stirring and stately scenes. Selling at a fraction of the price of the competition, this Dover edition reveals a little known, yet marvelously expressive side of the great American writer.
