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.
