Pioneer Girl Still Available

UPDATE 1/27/2014
Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography is now TEMPORARILY OUT OF STOCK. A second printing was ordered prior to Thanksgiving and shipped January 16-23. Orders are still being accepted, and orders placed after 5 p.m. CST, February 20, will be shipped in April.

On November 17, the South Dakota Historical Society Press began shipping Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography. Since that time, enthusiastic reviews in places such as Foreword Reviews, the Christian Science Monitor, and the Los Angeles Times have helped to make the book highly in demand. Already we are near the end of our stock from the first printing.

If you would like to buy a copy of Pioneer Girl, we encourage you to order as soon as possible, and while we cannot guarantee pre-Christmas delivery using our normal media mail rate, you can call us at (605) 773-6009 to arrange first-class shipping. Our office hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST, Monday through Friday.

In addition, we would like to announce that a second printing is in the works.  We promise that Pioneer Girl will be in print as long as readers want to explore the legacy of Laura Ingalls Wilder. Thank you for supporting the mission of the South Dakota Historical Society Press and the Pioneer Girl Project.

  1. Many of us have ordered through Amazon. Do you still plan to fulfill that order? We have been told it is already out of stock and want to make sure we will indeed receive it through that venue.

    • Thank you for your question; we’ve had many similar ones. At this time, Amazon does not order directly from the South Dakota Historical Society Press. Consequently, we have no control over when or how they receive books to distribute to their customers. While we anticipated high demand, sales of Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography have outpaced the most optimistic pre-publication estimates. We will receive more books mid-January and will resume shipping the book to distributors, bookstores, retailers, and individuals at that time. We have no doubt that Amazon will eventually have the book in stock.

  2. I’m really enjoying what I’ve read so far. I think the book also makes a beautiful “coffee table” or similar book. Thank you again to everyone who was involved in the process of creating this book!

  4. Thank you for informing us of Amazon’s way of obtaining copies of your book. Does Barnes and Noble, in contrast to Amazon, order its copies of this book directly from the South Dakota Historical Society Press?

  5. Is there any update on when the new order of books will be shipped? I know your post says mid-January, but I wondered if that was going to be delayed.

    Thanks for all the effort you have put into this book!

    • Hello Kim, thank you for your question and appreciation. Books from the second printing have been shipped to distributors, bookstores, and online retailers. A third printing is also on its way, and it will arrive in March.
