Description
A fifteenth-century peasant girl leads a French army to victory.A biography of the fifteenth-century peasant girl who led a French army to victory against the English, witnessed the crowning of King Charles VII, and was later burned at the stake for witchcraft. In the last two years several books have appeared about Joan of Arc. In this one, the story is kept simple with brief comments about the political situation in France and the long standing war with England. The dispirited and defeated French are rallied by Joan, The Lily Maid, who truly believes that God has placed her on earth to save her beloved country. She leads the troops to victory, attends King Charles VII's coronation, is captured by the British and tired as a witch, found guilty and burned at the stake. The text is accompanied by striking sepia tone illustration executed through two print making techniques--dry point and etching. They give the book more of a 15th century feel and offer plenty of detail and action for young readers. An author's note provides background on the Hundred Years War.
