Songs of a Prairie Girl is the third (and last) in Canadian singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell's series of compilations. Mitchell writes in the liner notes to the CD that the compilation is her contribution to Saskatchewan's Centennial Celebration and that the songs of the album reference Saskatchewan. Although Mitchell was born in Alberta, when she was eleven years-old her family settled in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, which Mitchell considers her hometown.
