Craig Thompson returns home- into the heart of rural Wisconsin- to the former global capital of ginseng cultivation. We meet his sister Sarah who was excluded from Blankets- and the Ginseng farmers who employed Craig and his brother as children. Craig explores the problems with autobiography- the nature of memory- and the editing that necessarily follows. Ginseng Roots is a masterful mix of personal history set against a background of global trade- corporate agriculture- and climate change.
