Craig unearths the geological origins of the Ginseng-friendly Wisconsin soil, gets a grimy, back-breaking, and lucrative job of rock picking, and develops an alarming rocky lump. The issue also touches on rural gentrification, and how various varieties of Ginseng are recognized and utilized. A stunningly drawn rich tapestry of personal experience, family history, and Wisconsin's place in the global Ginseng trade.
