GINSENG ROOTS issue three unearths the earliest recorded knowledge of ginseng and its healing properties. From the mythic figure that first discovered it: Shennong, the god of farming and medicine, through tales of ginseng hunters in the mountains of ancient China, to the first ever International Wisconsin Ginseng Festival in the author’s hometown. A red thread of history and time binds the ginseng buyers from Asia with rural growers in America. By Craig Thompson (BLANKETS).
