Summer 2020 Progress Report

Last year about this time, we reported that the Pioneer Girl Project team was hard at work on Pioneer Girl: The Revised Texts. And we have made progress, laying out the various sections of the manuscript as we complete work on them. Much remains to be done, however, and effective the first of July 2020, I will begin to focus closely on completing that book and the one that will follow: Pioneer Girl: The Path into Fiction.

I am leaving my position as director and editor-in-chief of the South Dakota Historical Society Press and as director of the State Historical Society’s Research and Publishing office. I will continue as director and editor-in-chief of the Pioneer Girl Project. As you might suspect, wearing all those hats has kept me rather too busy to focus on the Pioneer Girl Project. That is about to change, and I am looking forward to the transition.

  1. I have confidence in you Nancy. I cherish the first two books in the series and am looking forward to the last two. I hope to see you in NY in ’22.

  2. You were wearing many big hats! So glad you will be continuing with the Pioneer Girl Project. It is of so much interest to me and several of my friends.
    Keep up the great work!
    But, remember to take a day off occasional for yourself.
