THE STORY OF JOAN OF ARC by Mark Twain. Few know of Mark Twain's excellent work on the true story of the Church's greatest saints and martyrs; one who was persecuted and put to death by a corrupt faction of her own Church. Here is a story of high adventure told with directness and force. It is a symbol of religious expression, interwoven with tragedy and charm. Let us hope that Joan's spirit and example will be an inspiration to those who read this book and particularly the youth who can love her and follow her example.
Mark Twain wrote, "I like Joan of Arc best of all my books; and it is the best; I know it perfectly well. And besides, it furnished me seven times the pleasure afforded me by any of the others; twelve years of preparation, and two years of writing. The others needed no preparation and got none."
