Published by A.R. Harding

ISBN 0-936622-09-1

A wonderful read and historically valuable resource. almost 400 pages of text that describes many medicinal plants in addition to ginseng.


Growing and Marketing Ginseng, Goldenseal and other Woodland Medicinals by  W. Scott Persons and Jeanine M Davis ISBN 0-914875-42-0 Bright Mt Books, Inc. Fairview N.C. This is the ultimate textbook for “wanna be” ginseng and other woodland herb growers. A must for any serious grower. This book is now available as an “on line” version through Amazon.


Ginseng, the Divine Root, The Curious History of the Plant that Captivated the World by David A. Taylor Algonquin Books, 2006 This recently published book provides a wonderful overview of the history, use and mystique surrounding this fascinating plant. Taylor is an excellent writer and the characters he writes about in the book are almost as interesting as the plant itself.


Ginseng Dreams, The Secret World of America’s Most Valuable Plant by Kristen Johannsen ISBN-13: 978-0-8131-2384-4 The University Press of Kentucky 2006

Another brand new book that is quite similar to Taylor’s and equally as informative. Although perhaps not quite as well written as “The Divine Root” this book contains more information on current medicinal research on ginseng.
