Around the World in Seventy-Two Days : And Other Writings Paperback
by Nellie Bly
Born Elizabeth Jane Cochran, Nellie Bly was renowned as America's first 'girl stunt reporter'.
She was a pioneer of investigative journalism, including an expose of patient treatment at a mental asylum and a travelogue from her record-breaking race around the world in emulation of Phileas Fogg.
This volume, the only printed and edited collection of Bly's writings, includes her best-known works as well as many lesser-known pieces that capture the breadth of her career from her fierce opinion pieces to her remarkable World War I reporting.
