Vintage Southwestern Children's Books

No, I didn't get Western boots when I was in New Mexico. Even more sad - I didn't have time to pursue any vintage children's books there. I saw a reproduction of a vintage children's book about a coyote at a museum and now I'm kicking myself for not getting it. I balked at the $12 price tag for a smaller softcover book. It was well drawn by the illustrator whose name I can't remember nor the name of the book. A quick search hasn't yielded results.
But I'll continue looking. 

Meanwhile, I did a search on vintage Southwestern children's books and came up with several images that I hope you will like. I can't guarantee that they are all Southwestern, as I discovered in my search that there is a publishing company called Southwestern, which made my search a little trickier.

Taos is a lovely place to visit, they say it is like Santa Fe was 30 years ago. I think Mabel Dodge Luhan was a friend to Georgia O'Keefe. We went to the Georgia O'Keefe Museum in Santa Fe. I think O'Keefe was an interesting and unique person, especially for her time.
