Description

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.
