Description
En route from Venice to Paris with 26 pieces of luggage, a letter of introduction from Woodrow Wilson himself, and her companion Ethel Norris, 25-year-old Nancy Johnson—daughter of U.S. Congressman Ben Johnson of Kentucky—found herself stranded in Europe along with 120,000 other Americans when war broke out in 1914. But in the weeks that followed, as the pair retreated to Italy, struggled to reach Genoa and a chartered ship, and dodged warships and submarines across the Atlantic, this self-described "spoiled southern belle" transformed into a determined young woman, keenly aware that their survival depended on decisiveness and courage. Author and playwright Mary Schaller—her granddaughter—relates Johnson's real-life adventure on the world stage.
