No one ever took Joan seriously...Joan of Arc was gifted with visions instructing her to liberate France from the armies of the English. As a young woman she defied friends, family, and even members of the government in her attempts to free the French. By the strength of her personality and her ability to foretell the future, Joan convinced the King of France to grant her an armed force. In return, she led her small band of followers to take on and defeat the might of the English. Her conviction ensured her a place at the forefront of Frances military history. During her adventures, Joan of Arc inspired unlikely allies to join her, faced danger unflinchingly, planned battle winning strategies and had the insight to motivate a nation. All that stood between Joan and her visions becoming reality were the treacherous actions of bureaucrats, and a King unable to think for himself. From Mark Twain, the writer of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (also published by Campfire), comes an engaging tale of friendship, courage, conviction and treachery. Since 1896, the original Joan of Arc novel has been reprinted again and again, proving that its themes of determination, friendship and sacrifice are still relevant in todays modern world.
