The Annotated Pioneer Girl is finally in the design stages! After several delays, the South Dakota State Historical Society Press has announced that the annotated version of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s original memoir, Pioneer Girl, edited by Pamela Smith Hill, is nearing completion and slated for publication later this year. I’m sure we are all anxious for its release; I know I am!
We are excited to share the good news that the design of Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography has begun and the cover will feature a watercolor entitled Silver Lake Reflections by artist Judy Thompson. It depicts a young Laura Ingalls Wilder surrounded by the prairie that defined her teenage years. The book, in final editing and design, is still on track for being released later this year.
