Ryann Savino first read Ellen Meloy's work while canoeing down the Green River through Labyrinth Canyon. Based in Southeastern Utah she is a river guide, writer, and archivist. For the past three years, she's worked alongside Ken Sleight, a dear friend of Ellen's, to preserve his archives and stories. Ryann believes preservation of land is inextricably tied to the preservation of its stories and is honored to be a part of Ellen's legacy.
