Description

Simpler times don't necessarily mean easier living. From the northern reaches of New York to the southern hospitality of Georgia, the 1500 miles of the Appalachian range embody the struggles and "mountain justice" of America's frontier days. Today making its mark with primary exports furs, ginseng and moonshine, the area prospers during "the fat months" of late summer through harvest time, while taking a toll on its inhabitants. HISTORY® ventures into this flourishing territory and reveals the personal stories, strengths and family feuds of Appalachian Outlaws™.

Appalachian Outlaws shines light on History

I came across Appalachian Outlaws and thought, "I'm from Appalachia", let’s see what this is about. I’m in the Blue Ridge Mountains to be more specific and remember as a kid "livin' in na holla", my first ever experience with Ginseng which is what this show is based around. As a boy of 10, I remember finding it odd that my Uncle while driving us to school, had fat roots of something spread across the maroon sill of his car's back window to be dried by the Sun. When my brother and I asked about it, he just said, "That's money Nephews!" I was enthralled with tales of Ginseng hunting and the battles fought and the blood spilled in competitive pursuit of it. This show triggered my fond memories of this fascinating botanical curiosity from my childhood.
The show is based around some Mountain folk that dig, sell and buy Ginseng during the 9 magical weeks it's in bloom. In many areas, this plant is regulated so some have to resort to poaching and trespassing. Poaching can get you up to 5 years in Prison and the latter of which can get you shot. It’s writhe with adventure, suspense, tension and the show is edited fairly as to show both sides of the Ginseng pursuit. This natural-growing plant is Appalachian gold and so is this show.

Love this Show!

I have gensing fever and 5 episodes just isn't enough. More episodes and longer season would be awesome. Thanks. Hope to see new stuff soon.
