Around the World on Two Wheels
Annie Londonderry's Extraordinary RideBook - 2007
Annie Kopchovsky became known as Annie Londonderry as part of a sports endorsement deal with the Londonderry Lithia Springs Water Company (and you thought naming sports venues after companies was bad!). Was she a super-athlete? No, she was a Jewish immigrant, wife, and mother of three living in Boston during the Victorian era. Annie, not one to let attitudes of the time get in her way, left her family behind to travel around the world on a bicycle. Though the world has almost forgotten this incredible story of a charismatic master of public relations, her great-nephew has brought Annie back to life in this fascinating book.
