Overview

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 France's 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 novel of Joan of Arc has been reprinted again and again, proving that its themes of determination, friendship and sacrifice are still relevant in today's modern world.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc in the Campfire edition is a good way to introduce younger readers to one of the lesser works of one of the great American writers, a work they are not likely to seek out on their own. . . . Also useful for the younger reader is the short biographical note on Mark Twain and a two-page appendix with information on other famous female warriors.

"I highly recommend Campfire’s comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in  a way that excites kids about classic literature."

— Chris Wilson, The Graphic Classroom (a resource for teachers and librarians)

Meet the Author

Mark Twain

Samuel Langhorne Clemans, known to most as Mark Twain, has been hailed by many as the father of American Literature. Twain was born in Florida, Missouri on 30th November 1835. He grew up in the town of Hannibal on the Mississippi River, which would eventually serve as the basis for the place where Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn would live. Twain grew up in Missouri at a time when it was a slave state. After the American Civil War broke out, he became a strong supporter of emancipation, and staunchly believed that the slave trade should be abolished.
