Around the World in Seventy-Two Days and Other Writings

Born Elizabeth Jane Cochran, Nellie Bly was one of the first and best female journalists in America and quickly became a national phenomenon in the late 1800s, with a board game based on her adventures and merchandise inspired by the clothes she wore. Bly gained fame for being the first “girl stunt reporter,” writing stories that no one at the time thought a woman could or should write, including an exposé of patient treatment at an insane asylum and a travelogue from her record-breaking race around the world without a chaperone.

This volume, the only printed and edited collection of Bly’s writings, includes her best known works — Ten Days in a Mad-House, Six Months in Mexico, and Around the World in Seventy-Two Days — 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. Published in honor of the 150th anniversary of Bly’s birth, this collection celebrates her work, spirit, and vital place in history.
