  1. Ginseng

    GINSENG

    by David A. Taylor. Ginseng, now making its appearance in softdrinks (where its health benefits should be remarkable), has had a long, colorful history. And its future looks just as interesting. David Taylor explores both in his intriguing book. Ginseng is native to 2 countries, China and North America and Taylor traveled extensively in each to learn about Ginseng. His profiles of the characters he meets are wonderful - Chinese dealers, New York traders, and modern day 'Gensingers' - wild 'sang' hunters and 'simulated wild' growers. He compares ginsengs uses in Eastern and Western medicine and looks at past and present research into ginsengs medicinal effect. He also shows the seamier side of ginseng - behavior induced throughout Asian, European and American history - by its high value. A fascinating look at the side effects of ginsengs magical promise of good health, longevity, and wealth. Hardcover 308pp Pub at $23.95 Learn More
