Nellie vs. Elizabeth: Two Daredevil Journalists' Breakneck Race around the World

Nellie Bly was an energetic and eager reporter, but she wasn't able to think of a good story for her editors. Wishing she was on the other end of the earth, Nellie had an inspiration: she would travel around the world, just like in the fictional adventure book Around the World in Eighty Days. When a fellow journalist, Elizabeth Bisland, heard about Nellie's plans, she decided to up the stakes — by beating Nellie in her own race!

In this real-life adventure, daredevil and groundbreaking journalists Bly and Bisland race against each other — and the clock — as they circle the globe by ship, train, and foot. Join these two stereotype-shattering reporters as they prove that not only is traveling around the world possible, but that women are just as curious, capable, and courageous as any man.

Description

"As both Bly and Bisland embark from New York in opposite directions, high-energy prose tracks their progress, studded with direct quotes from both travelers and coverage of their trips: '"I am running a race with Time," Nellie told a steamship agent in Hong Kong. "Time?" he replied. "I don’t think that’s her name." Nellie’s jaw dropped. This was the first she’d heard of Elizabeth Bisland.' In acrylic inks and colored pencil, Gibbon provides brightly colored, intricately doodle-like accompaniment as numbered spreads portray the women’s impressively conveyed journeys." — Publishers Weekly
