Product Description:

Did you know that Mark Twain wrote a major work on Joan of Arc? I didn't either! However, Mark Twain himself stated, "I like Joan of Arc best of all my books; and it is the best" He spent twelve years researching detailed accounts written by both the French and the English, and two years writing. This story is amazingly told (remember, it is written by one of the best storytellers of all time!), as Twain ingeniously has a fictional man by the name of Alden, translating a fictional memoir by the narrator and Joan's long time friend, de Conte. This is an extraordinary book about an infamous woman, written by a literary phenomenon. Pb, 452 pgs. elise

From 500 A.D. to 1530 A.D., this literature approach to history takes students through the medieval period via some of the best classic and historic literature available. Students read works by classic authors such as Shakespeare, Chaucer, and Sir Walter Scott. They learn about heroic figures of the time like Wycliffe, Tyndale, Joan of Arc, Luther, Saladin and more. This one-year course has been revised and the publishers have broken the study into two guides; one for intermediate/junior high grades, and one for high school. The guides are now full-color. The Intermediate/Junior High guide features 35 weekly lessons with reading assignments, mapping activities, research and discussion topics, hands-on and craft suggestions, vocabulary lists and more.

It popped up on your recommendations after a few other books that were similar and as I love Mark Twain, I thought I would check it out.

This is the only book Twain wrote without taking any monetary gain. Twain referred to this work as his best and most important. Those two factors alone have to make it well worth the read. Twain thought of Joan of Arc as one of the greatest human beings history has been graced with. We need accountings of courage, character, virtue, and faith to aid and encourage us in these times in which we live.

I'm intrigued that this was Mark Twain's favorite of all of the books he wrote. I'm sure it will be a great addition to our family library.

are all volumes in this edition?
A shopper on Jul 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I'm a little uncertain of your question. If you are asking if we carry any other version of this book, then the answer is "no". If you are asking if all copies of this book that we have in the warehouse look like this, the answer is "yes."
Are there any study guides for this book?
A shopper on Mar 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We are using it with our Medieval History for senior high by Beautiful Feet. It contains four pages that are a guide for that book. It covers it in three weeks. We have not done this book yet, but I think we will probably take a little longer to complete it.
