I have been working my way through the book.  The first version of
drawRibbons (Section 10.2, page 487) seems to work as described.
The second version (section 10.3,  page 489) produces some error
messages which I don't understand. The following is the session.
(after a )clear all)

(1) -> )read ribbons
drawRibbons(flist, xrange, yrange) ==
  sp := createThreeSpace()
  num := # flist
  yVar := variable yrange
  y0:Float := lo segment yrange
  width:Float := (hi segment yrange - y0)/num
  for f in flist for color in 1..num repeat
    makeObject(f, xrange, yVar=y0..y0+width,
       var2Steps == 1, colorFunction == (x,y) +-> color,
       space == sp)
    y0 := y0 + width
  vp := makeViewport3D(sp, "Ribbons")
  drawStyle(vp, "shade")
  outlineRender(vp, "on")
  showRegion(vp, "on")
