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.

In print for over 50 years, this continues to delight listeners with E.B. White's witty, succinct observations on daily life at a Maine saltwater farm.Too personal for an almanac, too sophisticated for a domestic history, and too funny andself-doubting for a literary journal, One Man's Meat can best be described as a primer of a countryman's lessons and a timeless recounting of experience that will never go out of style.
