Vic Reid is a Jamaican novelist and historian. He wrote most of the lower level school books on The History of JA and the wider Anglo-Caribbean. His novels are usually based on historical events such as The Morant Bay Rebellion. He added much joy to my childhood.

I read "The Jamaicans", a wonderful novel by Reid on Juan de Bolas, the Spanish Maroon leader.

New Day is based on the period from the Morant Bay rebellion to universal adult suffrage in the 1940s
