Children's Literature - Annie Laura Smith
This book is part of an extensive historical series of "You Wouldn't Want to Be..." books about people, places, and things. A contents page details the contents by chapters starting with an introduction and ending with an index. The introduction sets the historical time and place in 1428 in Domremy, France, and introduces the dream and sacred mission of Joan or Arc: to save France. The story takes the reader from Joan's role as a dutiful daughter to her becoming the leader of the French Army and her subsequent death. "Handy Hints," highlighted with illustrations throughout the chapters, provide guidelines for survival during the difficult period of time in which Joan of Arc lived. Maps and other color illustrations of the historical characters and places complement the text throughout the book. A glossary defines the historical vocabulary with words such as battlement, Hundred Years' War, and martyr, which Joan of Arc has historically become. The comprehensive index provides easy navigation through the book. Reviewer: Annie Laura Smith
