The New Wild West

Black Gold, Fracking, and Life in A North Dakota Boomtown

Audiobook CD - 2017
Rate this:
Williston, North Dakota, was a sleepy farm town for generations, until the frackers arrived. The oil companies moved into Williston, overtaking the town and setting off a boom that America hadn't seen since the Gold Rush. Workers from all over the country descended, chasing jobs that promised them six-figure salaries and demanded no prior experience. Using a mix of first-person adventure and cultural analysis, Blaire Briody presents an account of what's happening on the ground and what really happens to a community when the energy industry is allowed to set up in a town with little regulation or oversight, and at what cost.
