  4. Dear Donors-

    Thank you all so much for funding the Pioneer Girl project. I grew up on Laura’s books and the very adapted TV show. I can not even begin to tell you how many times I’ve reread the series and read part of it to my own children. I even visited De Smet, South Dakota on my way to Library School in Illinois. So thank you for making this project possible, and the book at a reasonable cost. I look forward to acquiring and reading it.
