Very remotely related to our subject...

Anyone here heard the term 'out in the ginsengs'?

I caught it in a book by Oregon rancher Herman Oliver.  It seems to 
mean 'out in the sticks / boonies / tules'.

No Google hits.  I'm a little curious.  

On a similar note, there supposedly was or is a perception that there are 
two kinds of Chilcotin Indians: Stone or Ston(e)y, and Stick Chilcotins.  
This is per James Teit's 1909 information in the unsolved historical 
mysteries site, www.mysteryquests.ca.
