When Annie Londonderry, Jewish wife and mother of three, departed from the Boston State House, travelling with only a change of clothes and a pearl-handled revolver, she was actually embarking upon a journey that would embody three of the most powerful social movements of the 1890s: the women's movement for social equality, the bicycle craze and globalisation. This amazing account of Annie's astounding journey is a rambunctious adventure which is just as sure to appeal to fans of Verne's Around the World in 80 Days as it is to devotees of Sylvia Plath and Gloria Steinem.
