Awe...Some Roots, I imagine that many a Native American walked past the plant when they hunted the lands ! As was said earlier, it needs to be well preserved as a whole plant. (as I hope it was) Many Oriental friends would bid for a chance to own this and display it,as its owner. Much respect for this \"Divine Root\", and the hunters that found these ... Great Spirit to be in its company
I have to share , after having just finished the book by David A Taylor
\"Ginseng, the Divine Root\"
..a must read...in his introduction he quotes
\" The Cherokee speak of the plant as as a sentient being...
able to make itself invisible to those unworthy to gather it\"
--- William Bartram, naturalist, Philadelphia 1791
