Pioneer Girl Project Nancy Tystad-Koupal provided insight into the Pioneer Girl Project, the significance of publishing the manuscripts of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s autobiography, and the importance of exploring Laura Ingalls Wilder’s life and work. Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote the Little House on the Prairie series, which went on to sell billions of copies as well as inspire a popular television series. For years, Wilder’s autobiography laid dormant.
