Around the World in Seventy-Two Days

by Nellie Bly

Nellie Bly is one of those female authors we should know better than we do. She pioneered journalism as a career for women and in so doing changed journalism--she had to be more sensationalist to get work. Thus her award winning expose of an insane asylum and this book-- a stunt to prove that Vern was right and that a woman could get around the world faster than Phinneas Fogg.
