Pie Town Woman: The Hard Life and Good Times of a New Mexico Homesteader
by Joan Myers
Publisher's Description
"Pie Town, New Mexico, was immortalized in 1940 in the photographs of Russell Lee, who documented life in the high, dry, farming community as part of the Farm Security Administration's New Deal survey of American life. This book tells the story of one of the women photographed by Lee. Doris Caudill lived on a homestead with her husband and daughter, who was six years old when Lee made his famous photographs. Many of these show Doris planting her garden, canning vegetables, and milking cows. Now, more than sixty years later, Joan Myers, herself a distinguished photographer, introduces us to the woman behind the pictures."-the publisher
