What Others are
Saying about Jane's Speeches and Books
"You left everyone wanting more. Your program was
informed, insightful and well researched. Your
charismatic delivery engaged the audience
as demonstrated in the question and answer segment. We
all have enjoyed your book and appreciate the level of
detail and perspective that you have brought to this
Ranger, National Park Service
"I really enjoyed her message"
"Enjoyed hearing about history"
"Very good, wish we could have heard more from her"
"Really enjoyed what she had to say"
"I attended the San Antonio Baylor
Women's League luncheon where you spoke last year. I
have reflected on your message, "what is a
revolution" so many times! ~especially amidst the recent
political changes... I'm really enjoying your blogging."
Next Generation Doris Kearns Goodwin
"Jane is a young mother of three and is sometimes
referred to as the next generation Doris Kearns Goodwin. Her
grasp of history is breathtaking but what makes her unique is
the way she can weave the faith of our founding into our
current day to day journey."
Pam, Washington D.C.
Actually, "stirring" was just one of the appropriate
words I could have used about her address Saturday (Nebraska
Right to Life). It was also informative, challenging and
refreshing. She speaks like a writer: organized, concise and
skilled as both a wordsmith and storyteller. And the subject
of her talk -- those heroic virtues and noble purposes of the
such Founding Fathers as George Washington, Samuel Adams and
John Adams which need to be embraced by pro-life advocates in
our era -- well, that provided plenty of inspiration
too." Denny Hartford, Vital Signs Ministries
Put it Down
“Jane, I just finished reading Stories of Faith and Courage from the Revolutionary War and could
not put it down! Your extensive research and molding the book
truly is a significant accomplishment. The book enabled me to
chronically experience the Revolutionary War and share the
emotions of our Founders... If
you never do another thing, you have made your life count,”
Want it to End
"Moving through your book and loving it.
Don’t want it to end... Anyway, hate to come to the
last page (I’ve cheated, looking ahead at your reference
pages so I have a true sense of how much is left).
There are 'meat extenders' to make hamburger go a
little further. Isn’t
there something like a 'book extender?'" Russ,
“Jane Hampton Cook does not know she is a magician.
Generally, I don't like to read and history is a topic that is
low on my list. I thought perhaps I could read this book since
it was a gift and it had stories, essays and writings that
were short, very short, which is a good recipe for me. But
there were a lot of them so I began slowly. Amazingly I was
caught up in the sights, sounds, conversation and convictions
of the colonists in such a manner that I thought I was there.
But her tools were not secret concoctions
and potions, instead she transformed the theater-of-my-mind
through the writings, short writings mind you, of the
colonists themselves. Not through Op-Eds but by presenting the
actual words and thoughts written by those individuals who
were experiencing the search of unencumbered life, simple
liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Ms. Cook waved the magic wand of eye
witness accounts that revealed the full spectrum of triumph,
defeat and the boundless hope of those who demonstrated faith
and courage in the revolutionary quest for "a separate
and equal station" from England
. As I followed the persevering trail of those pioneers of
liberty I lost track of the shortness of the stories.
But I digress. You MUST read the book and
take the journey - Abra Ka Dabra.” from
