Ginseng, The Divine Root uncovers an epic tale of herbal medicine and the plant prized for centuries by emperors, Native American healers, herbalists and smugglers. Collected by Daniel Boone, ginseng was one of America's first major exports to the Far East. The book tracks the plant through one season, following its wild ride from remote forests in Appalachia to bustling markets in southern China. The book weaves a journey laced with international crime, myths, gourmet cuisine, pop culture, herbal medicine, continental drift, and deep forests.
