About the Author:

Laura Ingalls Wilder (1867 1957) finished her autobiography, Pioneer Girl, in 1930 when she was sixty-three years old. Throughout the 1930s and into the early 1940s, Wilder utilized her original manuscript to write a successful series of books for young readers. Her daughter, journalist Rose Wilder Lane, served as her editor and borrowed from her mother s life story to write two novels of her own. Pioneer Girl, which chronicles sixteen years of Wilder s pioneer youth, is where all the stories begin. Wilder died in Mansfield, Missouri, at ninety years of age on February 10, 1957.

Pamela Smith Hill is the award-winning author of Laura Ingalls Wilder: A Writer s Life and three historical novels for young adults Ghost Horses, The Last Grail Keeper, and Voice from the Border. She has taught creative and professional writing at universities in Oregon, Washington, and Colorado, as well as a course on Laura Ingalls Wilder through Missouri State University. She grew up forty miles from Rocky Ridge Farm, launched her writing career not far from De Smet, and now lives and works in Portland, Oregon.

Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography is a publication of the Pioneer Girl Project, which is a research and publishing program of the South Dakota State Historical Society.
