Rebecca Lawton

Rebecca Lawton was one of the first woman river guides on the Colorado in Grand Canyon as well as other rivers in the West. Since 1974 she has teamed with geomorphologists, paleontologists, and ge- ographers to study the movement of silt, clay, sand, fossils, and other sedimentary particles in streams. Rebecca’s essay collection Reading Water: Lessons from the River was a San Francisco Chronicle Bay Area Bestseller. She currently serves on the board of directors for Friends of the River and lives on Pequeño Creek in Sonoma Valley.
