Two women determined to beat the record set in Jules Verne’s novel, going in opposite directions, recorded their quests for two rival New York publications in 1889.  Their journeys captivated the public and catapulted the two women – both who were already successful writers but came from very different backgrounds – into the spotlight.

The Women Who Wrote the War

Caldwell tells the story of a small, but determined, group of women journalists who risked their lives to report from the front lines of World War II.  Some names may be familiar (Margaret Bourke-White and Martha Gellhorn), but the stories from those who were unfamiliar are what really made this book one I could not put down.
