The strange story of Joan of Arc, the obscure peasant girl who became the national saint of France, is retold with simplicity, clarity and a powerful insight in this celebrated, classic biography.Saint Joan lives for the reader on every page: as Jeanne dArc, a shepherd girl in a remote part of fifteenth century rural France who was visited by visions of saints and angels; as Jeanne la Pucelle, the avenging virgin who regenerated the soul of a torn and wretched France and led her troops to victory at the relief of Orleans; and as Saint Joan of Arc, condemned as a heretic and witch by the English, burned at the stake, and five hundred years later, canonised as a saint.
