EIGHTY DAYS Nellie Bly and Elizabeth Bisland's History-Making Race Around the World

by | Read by Kathe Mazur

History • 19 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

By 1889, Nellie Bly was one of America's top female journalists, dazzling readers with her undercover investigations for Pulitzer's NEW YORK WORLD newspaper. In November of 1889, she left New York to cross the Atlantic and attempt to travel around the world faster than the protagonist in Jules Verne's AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHTY DAYS. Kathe Mazur narrates the story of Nellie's journey--as well as that of Elizabeth Bisland, a journalist for THE COSMOPOLITAN magazine who was sent west in an attempt to beat Bly back to New York. Mazur's delivery is clear, with just the right amount of auditory enhancement. She doesn't overdramatize but still manages to keep the listener hooked through 19 hours of travelogue.
