Journey to Christendom - Chapter 5
“But where is the Paladin?”
Welcome! Consider becoming a paid subscriber to enjoy the entire view of chapters from my books.
Now, I will close this section that has laid down the foundation of my journey with a delightful story that was the final impetus, the last push, for me to begin writing.
There was one other book I picked up to read. It was Joan of Arc, written by Mark Twain, quoted in the Forward section of this book. Few people realize that Mark Twain wrote a book on Joan of Arc or that he loved it more than all his other books and considered it his best. He spent twelve years researching it, including visiting France, and he recounted the story using both French and English sources. It is said to be a remarkably accurate account and is absolutely delightful, being one of the greatest stories on earth told by one of the greatest writers.
