Joan of Arc By Herself and Her Witnesses (ISBN 0-8128-1260-3) is a translation of a book by Régine Pernoud. The translator, Edward Hyams, won the Scott-Moncrieff Translation Prize for his work on this book. Pernoud was the founder of the Centre Jeanne d'Arc at Orléans, France, and a noted historian.
Consisting largely of excerpts from the original historical accounts, the book has been noted for this unique style. Saturday Review's article gave the view that: "One feels closer to Joan in these pages than in any of the modern biographies where the author's mannerisms and prejudices often obscure her behind a mist of emotion and controversy."
