Long commutes to work, road trips, Sunday drives, and suburban living are part of a lifestyle based on cheap and plentiful fuel. The public generally does not spend much time thinking, however, where our fuel comes from, the impact of hydraulic fracturing (fracking) activities on rural areas, or the risks to workers carrying out this dirty and dangerous work in harsh environmental conditions. This chapter defines boomtowns and describes different forms of these rapid growth communities, provides a short history of resource-based booms, and offers a profile of these booms. The issues of costs and benefits of a boom are addressed, and there is an explanation of why today’s boomtowns differ from their historical counterparts. Better understanding the dynamics of a boom is an important first step in developing strategies to reduce the worst of the boomtown effects.
