The New Wild West
- Black Gold, Fracking, and Life in a North Dakota Boomtown
- By: Blaire Briody
- Narrated by: Julie McKay
- Length: 11 hrs and 32 mins
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. But for every person chasing the American dream, there is a darker side - reports of violence and sexual assault skyrocketed, schools overflowed, and housing prices soared.
