Time To Revisit Half-Pint and The Little House On The Prairie

Good news if you’re a fan of Laura Ingalls Wilder.  This summer, for the first time ever, her autobiography will be available to the public.

Pamela Smith Hill, editor of Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography, will debut Wilder’s personal story at the “2014 South Dakota Festival of Books,” September 26-28 in Sioux Falls.

Pioneer Girl was Wilder’s first real attempt at writing her childhood story, and ultimately formed the genesis for her beloved Little House books. Although Wilder wrote those books for children, she actually intended Pioneer Girl to be for an adult audience.

The book will provide historical context and will also feature lavish use of photographs and images from historical collections throughout the country.

The Little House Heritage Trust, the administrators of Wilder’s estate, granted the rights to publish Pioneer Girl to the South Dakota State Historical Society Press partly as a result of the Press’s award-winning 2007 biography, Laura Ingalls Wilder: A Writer’s Life, also written by Pamela Smith Hill.

Pioneer Girl will be available for purchase during the “Festival of Books.” Pre-orders are also available by e-mailing or calling 605-773-6009.
