To clarify: I'd like to produce a plot such as Naomi Robbins presents in
figure 4.11 of her book, "Creating More Effective Graphics."

In my case I want to present river boxplots of discharges over each
monitoring site's period of record as a vertical stack of horizontal
boxplots. The northern-most site actually has negative discharges twice a
day as it's tidally influenced at about 125 River Miles from the ocean and
the incoming tides push the water upriver.
