"I have a copy and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in stream restoration. Ann did her PhD work under Luna Leopold and she knows her stuff."

"Great piece of work. Marvelously produced. I particularly found the application of fluvial geomorphology (designing with bankful/dominant discharge in mind) to be clear, succinct and meaningful in doing design and bioengineering construction."
