“To be an American is to move on, as if we could outrun change. To attach oneself to place is to surrender to it, and suffer with it.”
– Kathleen Norris, Dakota: A Spiritual Geography
Generations of family farming tradition go up in flames as the North Dakota oil boom leaves human memory, culture and identity scorched in its wake. My Country, No More follows one family’s path to resistance, raising a fundamental question: what are we willing to sacrifice in our pursuit of progress?
