Description
 

In 1889, New York reporter Nellie Bly--inspired by Jules Vernes Around the World in 80 Days--began a circumnavigation she hoped to complete in less time. Her trip was sponsored by her employer, The World. Just hours after her ship set out across the Atlantic, another New York publication put writer Elizabeth Bisland on a westbound train. Bisland was headed around the world in the opposite direction, thinking she could beat Blys time. Only one woman could win the race, but both completed their journeys in record time.
