This small book is packed with ideas on how to be good stewards to American Ginseng. It is written from the perspective of my experience of growing and observing it in the Ozarks of northwest Arkansas. Note: You'll get the Wild Ozark Herbs DVD free and free shipping If you buy this book from my online shop (sorry, this offer is only available to US customers) instead of Amazon- it is $12 at our shop: (http://shop.wildozark.com).
I have a couple of books about ginseng. This is the only one that really tells you what to look for in the surrounding enviroment, what companion plants to look for, and what kind of terrain is suitable for the plant. If you have land that might have wild ginseng on it get this book. It will provide a valuable starter guide in what to look for.
LOVE THIS BOOK. I have purchased more expensive books and found this one to be the best. PICTURES are awesome. THE book is portable so I can take it into the woods with me. I like what she says. I have also purchased her other books and I say thumbs up!!
I am a novice when it comes to ginseng, this book gave me a great basis to begin on. Madison shares her experiences with the reader and she shares it in terms that I can understand. A few pictures are provided which will help in identifying ginseng and the companion plants that accompany the ginseng plant. The Kindle book is a fast read and provides links to various ginseng studies. Would highly recommend this book to others beginners.
A book about American ginseng and how to become a good steward. Includes a snapshot of what a rural buyer's market looks like and the people who are generational 'sang diggers.
My name is Madison Woods & I'm an author/photographer/naturalist who lives way off the beaten path in northwest Arkansas with my husband, horses, chickens, cats & dogs.
The latest short story is No Qualms, a dystopian urban fantasy set in the Ozarks & featuring bloodroot as an herbal ally. The nonfiction is usually about the medicinal, edible, useful, or beautiful plants of the Ozarks.

50 word summary of Bounty Hunter, my novel-in-progress:
"Treya signs on to be an ARSA agent- a bounty hunter. Criminals are hunted to grub stage, which means they need to be killed three times to force the lowest incarnation. What Treya doesn't know is that sheâ€™s on a hit list, too, and the hunter becomes the hunted."
