Members of the clergy considered her very dangerous. Those who analyzed her military achievements found her unskilled in strategy. But as history proved, young Joan of Arc was sincere in her godly mission and remarkably capable in motivating the French armies under her command.

This inspiring story recalls the life of a fifteenth-century farm girl who answered a divine call to drive the English from France and place a young prince on the shaky French throne. From Joan's early childhood in Domrémy and her touching story of the "Voices" she heard, to the fight for Orleans and the splendid march to Rheims, a miraculous tale unfolds of an extraordinary young woman who would become a saint. Her story will electrify today's youngsters, just as it has amazed generations of earlier readers.
