  • "A remarkably accurate biography of the life and mission of Joan of Arc told by one of this country's greatest storytellers. The very fact that Mark Twain wrote this book and wrote it the way he did is a powerful testimony to the attractive power of the Catholic Church's saints. This is a book that really will inform and inspire."@en
  • "A retelling of the story of Joan of Arc, who was destined to lead the people of France in war against English invaders, narrated by Wishbone the dog."@en
  • "De Conte is a fictionalized version of Joan of Arc's page Louis de Contes, and provides narrative unity to the story. He is presented as an individual who was with Joan during the three major phases of her life - as a youth in Domremy, as the commander of Charles' army on military campaign, and as a defendant at the trial in Rouen. The book is presented as a translation by Alden of de Conte's memoirs, written in his later years for the benefit of his descendants."@en
  • "Introduction by Justin Kaplan. Afterword by Susan K. Harris."
  • "A fictitious account of the personal recollections of Joan of Arc as written by her secretary and page Sieur Louis de Conte."@en
  • "A serious, impassioned, meticulously researched story about a compelling heroine, the Maid of Orleans, Twain viewed the work both as a bid to be accepted as a serious writer and as a gift of love to his favorite daughter, Susy, who would die tragically three months after Joan of Arc was published. Although set in 15th century Europe, Joan of Arc is a key text for anyone who would understand the ambivalence that greeted the New Women in turn-of-the-century America. Twain's novel illuminates some of the major currents, and contradictions, of turn-of-the-century life and thought."
  • "Regarded by many as the most luminous example of Twain's work, this historical novel chronicles the French heroine's life, as purportedly told by her longtime friend -- Sieur Louis de Cont.̌ A panorama of stirring scenes recount Joan's childhood in Domremy, the story of her voices, the fight for Orleans, the splendid march to Rheims, and much more."
  • "Published in 1896, this work purports to be the found memoirs of Joan's page and secretary, Louis de Conte. Twain considered this, his last published novel, to be his greatest; his lifelong fascination with Joan of Arc made this a fourteen year project. The novel follows Joan through youth, then as a commander of Charles's army, right up to her trial at Rouen."
