Nellie Bly's articles, collected for the first time ever!

Pioneering journalist Nellie Bly is best remembered for two "stunts": her undercover expose of the Blackwell's Island insane asylum, and her race around the world to beat the record set in Jules Verne's Around The World In 80 Days.

Yet those events do not begin to grasp the scope of her career as a reporter. Between 1885 and 1922, Nellie Bly penned hundreds of stories on a variety of topics. Reporting for Joseph Pulitzer's New York World, she interviewed presidential candidates and convicted criminals, sports heroes like boxer John Sullivan and wrestler William Muldoon, inspirational icons like Helen Keller and Susan B. Anthony, and many more. One week would find her undercover to expose a swindling lobbyist, the next taking up a new profession as an actress, and the next reporting on a strike.

Perhaps never before has a reporter had such a wide-ranging, adventurous career! Yet only a handful of her articles have been available to the public - until now! Edited by author David Blixt ("What Girls Are Good For"), Nellie Bly's World collects all of Bly's reporting during her years at the New York World.

Volume 1 begins with her cannon-blast debut, exposing over the course of three articles the events of her imprisonment in the Blackwell's Island insane asylum. But that's hardly all! Among the 33 articles included in this collection are:

What Becomes of Babies
The Girls Who Make Boxes
Wanted -- A Few Husbands
Nellie Bly on the Stage
Nellie Bly as a Mesmerist
The King of the Lobby
How to be Cured by Faith
Girls of the Wild West
Hangman Joe at Home
Our First Ladies

Explore the full power of Bly's Blackwing pencil at the beginning of her ascent to being the most famous woman in America!
