Throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, a steady stream of Scots migrated to Ulster and eventually onward across the Atlantic to resettle in the US.

From ancient ballads at the heart of the tradition to instruments that express this dynamic music, Ritchie and Orr chronicle the details of an epic journey.

We are delighted to announce that, as of 1 April 2017, titles published by the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) are now available worldwide from Eurospan (excluding North and South America).

SIAM was founded by a small group of mathematicians from academia and industry who met in Philadelphia in 1951 to start an organisation whose members would meet periodically to exchange ideas about the uses of mathematics in industry. This meeting led to the creation of SIAM, whose membership has grown from a few hundred in the early 1950s to more than 14,000 today.

SIAM exists to ensure the strongest interactions between mathematics and other scientific and technological communities, publishing high-quality monographs and textbooks for applied mathematicians, computational scientists, and engineers working in academia, government labs, and industry. SIAM authors are experts in their fields and can effectively communicate their expertise to students, researchers, and members of industry through their books.

This May, the South Dakota Historical Society Press will publish Pioneer Girl Perspectives, a collection of illuminating essays on Laura Ingalls Wilder and her work. This volume builds upon Wilder’s previously published, bestselling memoir Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography with a wealth of contextual perspectives and is perfect for fans hoping to gain further insight into the conception of the much-loved Little House books.

Laura Ingalls Wilder (1867-1957) finished Pioneer Girl in 1930 when she was sixty-three years old. After several rejections from publishers, she drew upon her original manuscript to write the Little House books which continue to enthral readers today. Until the release of Pioneer Girl  in 2014, the memoir had only been available at the Hoover Presidential Library (Iowa) as an unedited rough draft.

Initially, the press only expected the book to be successful within the academic community, but it quickly became a worldwide hit. Generations of Little House fans welcomed the release and took to bookshops in droves. The book received a lot of international press coverage, was featured on the New York Times bestseller list, sold translation rights, and had to be reprinted multiple times within the first few months of publication as demand was so high. The unexpected success of Pioneer Girl revealed a profound absence of material on the history of the Little House series. An absence that Wilders’ fans are clearly keen to have filled.

Pioneer Girl Perspectives
In Pioneer Girl Perspectives, Nancy Tystad Koupal has collected essays from noted scholars of Wilder’s life and work that explore the themes and genesis of Wilder’s writings. They shed new light on the story behind Wilder’s original manuscript and examines the ways in which the author and her daughter and editor, Rose Wilder Lane, worked to develop a marketable narrative. The contributors delve into the myths and realities of Wilder’s work to discover the real lives of frontier children, the influence of time and place on both Wilder and Lane, and the role of folklore in the Little House novels.

Together, the essays give readers a deeper understanding of how Wilder built and managed her story. Published over eighty years after its inception, Pioneer Girl gave readers new insight into the truth behind Wilder’s fiction. Pioneer Girl Perspectives further explores the importance of Wilder as an influential American author whose stories of growing up on the frontier remain relevant today.
