At the age of 19, Nellie Bly talked her way into an improbable job on a newspaper, then went on to become "the best reporter in America." She was serious and spunky; she even had herself committed to expose abuse of the mentally ill. But when she traveled around the world in just 72 days, beating Jules Verne's fictional escapade, she turned herself into world celebrity.
