Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 5-9-Determined to make a life for herself and help her family out of financial problems, Bly started her reporting career in Pittsburgh, PA, in 1885 for the Dispatch and went on to work for the New York World. Seemingly fearless, she traveled all over the world, most notably around it in 72 days, which Fredeen covers in detail. Always looking for a new challenge, and always looking for the limelight, Bly covered various social issues, including the women's suffrage movement. The book follows her many adventures and exploits from her stay at an insane asylum to report abuses to her time in Austria during World War I. Many black-and-white photos and reproductions of newspaper articles enliven the text. The engaging tone makes this title a good choice to recommend for an interesting read, while its attention to detail should provide solid research for reports. -Carol Fazioli, The Brearley School, New York City Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
