The name of Joan of Arc became a legend: an illiterate village girl, standing at the head of the French army, delivered her country from English rule and enthroned the king, who later betrayed her. In the novel by Mark Twain, the story of Jeanne – her childhood, her victories and death – is presented to the reader on behalf of her friend and secretary. This is a story about a great and noble soul, about a disinterested female heart that can withstand any load, even beyond the strength of the „mighty of this world.”
