Deep in Appalachia, there’s a war brewing over an ancient crop valued at $600 a pound. Supply can’t keep up with demand and it’s causing fierce competition inside and outside the law. This mountain gold is ginseng, and there’s a frenzied race to harvest it during its short two-month season. Appalachian Outlaws profiles the growers, the diggers and the middlemen in this dangerous new world money grab premiering Thursday, January 9 at 10PM ET/PT on HISTORY. (Source: History Channel)
Tony is in trouble. The rules have changed and Mr. Lee is demanding weekly ginseng deliveries. Tony provides Greg Shook with the location of a local but dangerous honey hole only if he can find a partner to accompany him. Greg calls in his favor from EJ and they head out to battle the elements in search for ginseng but they become separated. Mike Ross heads to Willow's farm to protect her ginseng patch. Poachers use the cover of darkness to steal Willow's ginseng but Mike Ross thwarts the poachers' attempt. Sam Lunsford and his gang begin to grow their ginseng empire with some helpful information from Ron McMillion. Raven and Ki happen upon Corby walking by the side of the road.
Tony Coffman has one more day to produce his midseason total of 1,000 pounds.
