Beautiful, historically correct color illustrations by the Author. CONTENT: Against the fascinating tapestry of Frances history during the Hundred Years' War, Diane Stanley unfolds the story of the simple thirteen-year-old village girl who in Just a few years would lead France to independence from English rule, and thus become a symbol of France's national pride. It is a story of vision and bravery, fierce determination, and tragic martyrdom. Diane Stanley's extraordinary gift to present historical information in an accessible and child-friendly format has never been more impressive, nor her skillful, beautifully realized illustrations (here imitating medieval illuminated manuscripts) more exquisite. Stanley wrintes wonderful biographies for kids. This is one of them. There are 2 pages at the end of the book detailing how King Charles finally got Joan's name cleared of heresy and why it took 500 years for the Church to name her "Saint." 1 copy.
