The Adventures of Santa Fe Sam by Sandi Wright, Riyon Harding (illustrator)

The Adventures of Santa Fe Sam by Sandi Wright

Winner of the NM/AZ Book Coop's Best Young Reader's Award, The Adventures of Santa Fe Sam has been a consistent bestseller at Collected Works Bookstore for years. Along with the optional Santa Fe Sam stuffed animal (sold separately, call the store for availability), this brightly illustrated work is a southwest educational adventure!

The easily lovable (and highly re-readable) book explores Santa Fe’s history through the eyes of one of our beloved local animals, the prairie dog. Through his various wanderings, the ever-inquisitive Santa Fe Sam learns all about local wildlife, art, food, and culture from past to present.

Local mother-daughter duo Sandi Wright and Riyon Harding (writer and illustrator respectively) have created a wonderful introduction to New Mexico. This hand-illustrated publication is the perfect gift for a young reader, sure to peak their curiosity about our beautiful home.
