Summary
On November 14, 1889, Nellie Bly, a young reporter for Joseph Pulitzer's World newspaper, left New York City by steamship on a quest to break the record for the fastest trip around the world. Also departing from New York that day -- and heading in the opposite direction by train -- was a young journalist from The Cosmopolitan magazine, Elizabeth Bisland. Each woman was determined to circle the globe in less than eighty days. The dramatic race that ensued would span twenty-eight thousand miles, captivate the nation, and change both competitors' lives forever
