  1. Hi Peggy. I write books about the common people of Kingsport. My first book is Understanding Apples, available for checkout at the Kingsport Library… My second book is Gathering Leaves. And the third book in the series comes out January 2010 and is titled Rooting Branches. Margaret Ripley Wolfe has a book detailing more techinical history of Kingsport. Hope this helps.
