Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - North Dakota has made the cover of the March issue of National Geographic.

The photo shows a bright orange flame with the headline "America Strikes Oil" with the subtitle ‘The Promise and Risk of Fracking.’ The article features a number of photos and maps that highlight the rapid development.

Many remember the last time North Dakota was featured in the magazine in January of 2008. That issue features empty barns and was titled "The Emptied Prairie." Now, national coverage barely turns a head.

Barnes and Noble in Bismarck is already sold out.
