"No Other World" is a fascinating account of the life of a young woman, Coincoin, who started life as a slave in Louisiana. Coincoin had no power, no rights and yet she had the inner resources to become the owner of a succesful business. More importantly, she changed the future forever for her ten children and all of their children to follow. This book gave me a look at a time-gone-by when the world was completely different than it is now. It is very clear that we all owe thanks to people like Coincoin for changing our society. Like her, we all must keep using our own inner strength and resources to create positive changes.
