Appalachian Outlaws

Appalachian Outlaws

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)

Episode Info

Prev: 1x06 -- The Last Stand (Feb/13/2014)

It's the final days of ginseng season, and diggers are risking it all for one last score. Greg Shook rappels down a treacherous cliff face, while Ron and Obie crawl deep into a cave in order to flee armed pot farmers. Landowner Mike Ross makes his final stand to protect his family's land from poachers. And the buyers–Tony Coffman, Corby "The General" Patton, and moonshiner Tiny Roberson–are scrambling to get their hands on as much 'seng as they can, but there isn't enough to go around to all of them.
