Don’t Throw Away Your Stick Till You Cross the River
The Journey of an Ordinary Man

This memoire by Vincent Collin Beach with Anni Beach received the prestigious Carter G. Woodson Book Award (secondary education) by The National Council for Social Studies in 2007.  A life story spanning eight decades, the book begins in Jamaica in 1924 and, with rich detail, fast-moving short chapters and a peppering of photos, engages the readers in the life of one man. Reviewed by thirteen judges from around the nation, the book fulfilled the many requirements established to increase understanding of ethnicity in a positive light in the United States.
