Summary, etc.:
"A biography of Nellie Bly, the pioneering journalist whose showy but substantive stunts skyrocketed her to fame"-- Provided by publisher.
Nellie Bly had ambitious goals for a woman at the end of the nineteenth century, when the few female journalists were relegated to writing columns about cleaning or fashion. The journalistic stunt that skyrocketed her to fame was feigning insanity, being committed to the notorious asylum on Blackwell's Island, and writing a shocking exposé of the clinic's horrific treatment of its patients. Discover how the world came to follow her enthralling career in "stunt" journalism that raised awareness of political corruption, poverty, and abuses of human rights.
