An American named by her mother for the British film and novel of the same name, Rebecca Pyle lives simultaneously within a very mountainous terrain and within a large city. The character Rebecca deWinter lived near water; Rebecca Pyle does too, very near the vast Great Salt Lake. It once was much vaster, its former vastness called by scientists old Lake Bonneville: estimated to have been twenty thousand square miles across, and popular with mastodons, mammoths, musk oxen.
