Appalachian Outlaws

About the show

The Appalachian region has the right elevation, rainfall and soil to produce some of the world's best ginseng. With demand for the herb increasing worldwide and supply not able to meet it, the crop's value is approaching $1,000 per pound. As is to be expected with such a valuable commodity, competition is fierce among growers, who are doing whatever it takes -- lawfully or not -- to control as much of the crop as possible.
