Pie Lady of Pie Town - final

In the middle of the New Mexico desert, pie equals love. Kathy Knapp left her charmed, privileged life in Dallas to bake pie in dusty Pie Town, New Mexico, a once forgotten corner of the world with no traffic light, gas station, grocery store or motel. Why? To find her center and give the world pie.

“Pie Lady of Pie Town,” chronicles Knapp’s physical and emotional journey, illustrating Kathy's resolve, heartache, healing, and how pie is a vehicle for love and peace. Narrated by American Indian Actor and New Mexico Resident Wes Studi, this truly heartwarming story shares the history of a ghost town brought back to life by pie and Kathy’s love.
