Joan of Arc

Takes the reader from Joan’s birthplace in Domremy through her rise to prominence and finally to her trial and execution.  The final chapters include her retrial in 1453 and her canonization as a saint. 

The biography is engaging and extremely pro-Joan with little space given to any theory that might discredit her or make her less than a victim of her antagonists.  Includes captioned paintings, drawings and sidebars.
