I bought this with two other books. The information is old school but very well organized. I was also included with my order a present for the holiday with a card which was a very nice touch. Nowadays companies don’t take the initiative but self reliance outfitters does. I’ve ordered plenty of gear, books and materials from this company and I shall say it’s like everything was tailored to be the best for you, the customer.
So far this is a very interesting and full of little known (at least to me) information.
I would say get this book to anyone interested in Ginseng cultivation and harvesting.
