New book "Resilient: Living, Dying, and Rising in Rural America" added to collection

The book Resilient: Living, Dying, and Rising in Rural America, by Raymond Adam Nadolny Ph.D., has been added to the Institute for Regional Studies Archives book collection.  The following book description comes from the book cover:

“A new college president takes a fantastic journey in western North Dakota.  He steps into an idyllic, rural community.  But within a year, the small-town stage of Williston meteorically and unexpectedly shoots to world fame after the discovery of rich oil reserves far beneath the picturesque farmland.  Isolated, abandoned, and surrounded by turmoil, the college president joins forces with local heroes, leveraging the community’s bottomless reservoir of resilience and do-it-yourself values, to keep their small town great.”
