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

Next: 2x09 -- Battle at Wolf Creek (Mar/30/2015)

Just when he's ready to call it quits for the season and accept the fact that he's lost over twenty thousand dollars of ginseng to the Lunsford Gang, Obie Bennett gets a tip about the location of the gang's secret storage spot from an unlikely source--his old partner, Ron McMillion. Also, Greg Shook and EJ Henderson pursue a tip of their own that leads the two of them to an impasse over their moral differences. With three days left to fill the final four hundred pounds of his Chinatown order, Tony Coffman is faced with difficult decisions. Meanwhile, when a group of poachers trespass his farm in the middle of the night, Mike Ross pulls out all the stops and unleashes a deadly firestorm to drive them away.

Prev: 2x08 -- Unlikely Allies (Mar/23/2015)

With the ginseng season nearly over, Greg Shook is homesick for his kids as he heads out to "Ginseng Mountain" with EJ Henderson on another dig for Tony Coffman. While there, Greg concocts a plan to help prevent their twenty-pound ginseng haul from being stolen at gunpoint by poachers. Obie Bennett meets with Tony to orchestrate another ginseng hunt with the Lunsford Gang in order to gain inside information about where the gang is storing their `seng. On his way home after his own meeting with Tony, Mike Ross is nearly run down by a truck, prompting him to beef up the security at his farm, including building an actual "fire wall." With all this, Tony Coffman is still two hundred pounds short on his standing ginseng order for his New York Buyer. Facing a strict deadline, Tony may have to make a deal with his worst enemy--Corby "The General" Patton.

Just for those that are interested (or those that think this show is in any way accurate), this show is fake. Ginseng is not harvested in the manner they show it. The guys that are on the show are not even native to the area (or Appalachia for that matter). They are a bunch of yahoos the show's producers dug up and put in front of a camera. Read more
