She was a peasant, who was born in a village in France. She was a soldier, who commanded an army. In time, she was pronounced a saint. Joan of Arc's life seems like a fable. Her death reads like tragedy. However, history records that she took command of French forces and drove the English from the city of Orleans. Drawing on the letters and testimony presented at Joan's trial, Ann Tompert presents a simply told narrative of a remarkable life. Joined with Michael Garland's dramatic illustrations that capture Joans' fifteenth-century world, here is the story of one of the most fascinating--and mysteriou--figures in history.
