Joan of Arc

Author: Mark Twain

Reader: Michael Anthony

Format: Playaway (Unabridged)

Very few people know that Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens) wrote a major work on Joan of Arc. Still fewer know that he considered it not only his most important but also his best work. He reached his conclusions about Joan's unique place in history only after studying in detail the accounts written by both sides, the French and the English. This is a fascinating and remarkably accurate biography of the life and mission of Joan of Arc.
