Lisa Westberg Peters' upcoming book, "Fractured Land," looks into the stories behind her family's inherited rights and royalties from fracking in North Dakota.

After her father died, her mother took over his mineral rights. Those rights and royalties became valuable when North Dakota's oil boom hit. But what should you do if you inherit this wealth as an environmentalist?

Peters joins The Daily Circuit to explore the ethical and financial implications of the land.

Peters' book launch is Thursday, Oct. 9 at Common Good Books, 7 p.m.
