One of the best books I've read this year. Scott A. Jones tells this hopeful and heartbreaking story of love and scars and fresh starts with graceful prose and a beautiful appreciation for the complication of both place and the human condition.
--Anne Hillerman, best selling author of A Cave Of Bones
And Throw Away the Skins is a fearless and savvy tale of love and loss set in a starkly beautiful landscape of northern New Mexico. Here is a story that is many stories, a drama of shattered lives and broken people in which a courageous woman gets one last chance to live a genuine life. Scott Archer Jones gives me all I want from a story: compassion, insight, and provocation.
-- John Dufresne, author of I Don't Like Where This Is Going
