      Ginseng Roots #10

      Phil joins Craig during a book tour in South Korea- through Seoul and Bucheon- then extending to a research journey in rural Geumsan- the epicenter of Korean ginseng cultivation. Geumsan is the sister city to Marathon- the brothers’ tiny American town- but with a deep thousand-year history of art- mythology- and cuisine surrounding the medicinal root. While there- the brothers sort out how Craig’s paralyzing writer’s block and Phil’s marital strain are tangled up in their working-class childhood.

      Ginseng Roots #7

      The seventh issue of Craig Thompson’s Ginseng Roots follows the story of a family of Hmong immigrants that may have been the first to farm ginseng in America. The Hmong story is traced from CIA’s Secret War in Laos, through the ethnic cleansing campaign in their homeland, to America’s reluctant acceptance of Hmong as refugees.

      Ginseng Roots #5

      The fifth issue flows along the ‘crimson creek’ of America’s history with ginseng: from the Native people’s uses of the plant, to French explorers’ ‘discovery’ in 1716, to America’s initiation of trade relations with China in 1784.
