Kendra Hill and her husband moved to rural North Dakota’s oil fields so he could earn double the wages he made in their native Washington. Now they’ve bought a house, they have a five-year-old and a baby, and even as the oil boom slows, they’re planning to make North Dakota their home. Todd Melby talked with Kendra as part of his series, “Black Gold Boom.”
