Inside The Boom: Sleeping In My Car

I was up on the Fort Berthold Reservation in North Dakota last week doing some reporting on how the oil boom is influencing the election for tribal chairman there. I was kind of winging it and didn’t have a plan of where to stay that night. I knew it might be hard to find a hotel room, but figured there’d probably be space in the tribally-owned casino. Wrong. Every single hotel in New Town was full.
