Around The World On Two Wheels: Annie Londonderry`s Extraordinary Ride - nouveau livre

ISBN: 9780806531717

ID: 9780806531717

Peter Zheutlin`s thoroughly researched account will make you wish you`d been around to catch a glimpse of the extraordinary woman as she went wheeling by. --Bill Littlefield, National Public Radio`s Only A Game Until 1894 there were no female sport stars, no product endorsement deals, and no young mothers with the chutzpah to circle the globe on a bicycle. Annie Londonderry changed all of that. When Annie left Boston in June of that year, she was a brash young lady with a 42-pound bicycle, a revolver, a change of underwear, and a dream of freedom. She was also a feisty mother of three who had become the center of what one newspaper called `one of the most novel wagers ever made`: a high-stakes bet between two wealthy merchants that a woman could not ride around the world on a bicycle. The epic journey that followed took the connection between athletics and commercialism to dizzying new heights, and turned Annie Londonderry into a symbol of women`s equality. A vastly entertaining blend of social history, high adventure, and maverick marketing, Around the World on Two Wheels is an unforgettable portrait of courage, imagination, and tenacity. `Annie was a remarkable woman and well worth getting to know.` --Booklist `A wonderful telling of one of the most intriguing, offbeat, and until now, lost chapters in the history of cycling.` --David Herlihy, author of Bicycle: The History `A pleasant, affectionate portrait of a free spirit who pedaled her way out of Victorian constraints.` --Kirkus Reviews `[A] charming and informative book.` --Cape Cod Times `[An] incredible story. . .[a] fascinating book.` --NextReads `[A] stirring tale. . .not only a must read, but a must have.` --Western Writers of America Roundup Magazine `[A] remarkable saga.` --The Winston-Salem (NC) Journal `[R]ead[s]. . .like a novel.` --The Columbia (SC) State `[M]eticulously researched. . .illuminat[es] the feeling of a bygone era.` --The Portsmouth (NH) Wire Peter Zheutlin has been chasing the story of his great-grandaunt Annie Londonderry for more than four years.
