Description

Thorough in research and meticulous in detail, the author has enriched this volume with a wealth of historic setting, human interest, and colourful anecdotes which have relieved it of the tedium that too often characterises industrial and historical works. The information is presented in three parts: first, the fascinating early history; second, details of unbelievable accomplishment in building the "deliberately planned" city; and finally, the absorbing descriptions of each major industry already thriving there. It also includes the Tennessee Eastman Corporation, the Kingsport Press, Holliston Mills, and the Mead Fibre Company. It has over thirty illustrations that add to the reader's enjoyment.
