Edition Notes: 

This is the advance reading copy of Skinwalkers. This edition was produced in 1986 by Harper & Row in New York City, New York. Skinwalkers is the seventh book in Tony Hillerman's Navajo Mystery Series.

This copy of Skinwalkers is the advance reading copy created for review, and the cover gives instruction for the literary reviewers:

    "This is an advance copy from uncorrected manuscript. Reviewers are reminded that changes may be made in this proof copy before books are printed. If any material from the book is quoted in a review, the quotation should be checked against the final bound book."

This edition gives insight into a usually unseen process of promoting a book before publication. An advanced reading copy is the uncorrected proof that is distributed, without charge, to: journalists, book sellers, and celebrities for review and for promotional purposes. This is usually done a half a year in advance of the book release, both so any issues can be corrected and so any celebrity endorsements can be printed on the dust cover.
