Pie Town Revisited includes a dozen Russell Lee images and fifty-two images Drooker made that capture the soul of the place and its people today. In addition to these color photographs, Drooker's essay describes his experience creating this unique historical record. The work is a portrait in words and pictures of the rugged individualists in this tight-knit community, recalling an America as it was and as it yearns to be again. Pie Town, as Drooker sees it, is indeed as American as apple pie.

"Drooker came to photograph 'a slice of life' as well as a slice of New Mexican apple pie. Do enjoy the real pies and 'the pioneer spirit' as it is presented to us in this visually pleasing revisit of a 'not-so-typical' dust bowl town!"--Denver Westerners Roundup
