They set out to tell some tales of the contemporary West, to chronicle what happens when a small farm community starts to turn big. Tracie Cone and Anna Marie dos Remedios wanted to write the story of Hollister, their adopted home.

Three major fault lines cut beneath town. Each day they serve up a couple of quakes, usually minor.
