Description

From ages 10 to 20, Craig Thompson (the author of Blankets) and his little brother Phil, toiled in Wisconsin farms.

Weeding and harvesting ginseng-a medicinal herb that fetched huge profits in China-funded Craig’s youthful obsession with comic books. Now, for the first time in his career, Thompson is working in serial form, in a bimonthly comic book series.

Part memoir, part travelogue, part essay, all comic book, Ginseng Roots explores class divide, agriculture, holistic healing, the 300 year long trade relationship between China and North America, childhood labour, and the bond between two brothers.
