The Duck Commander Family by Willie and Korie Robertson

About the Book:

Faith. Family. Ducks—in that order. This book gives readers an up-close and personal, behind-the-scenes look at the family in the exploding A&E show—Duck Dynasty. This Louisiana bayou family operates Duck Commander, a booming family business that has made them millions.  You’ll hear all about the Robertson clan from Willie and what it was like growing up in the Robertson household. You’ll sample some of Willie’s favorite family recipes from Phil, Kay, and even some of his own concoctions; and you’ll get to know the beautiful Robertson women.  You’ll hear from Korie about the joys and hardships of raising a family, running a business, and wrangling the Robertson men while staying fashionable and beautiful inside and out. Discover more about the family dynamics between brothers Willie, Jase, Jep, and parents Phil and Kay. You’ll even meet a fourth brother who isn’t in the show. The popularity of Duck Dynasty is skyrocketing, garnering a Wednesday-night top two finish in all of cable. The book releases in time for season two of the show in October 2012.

My Thoughts:

I always seem to be late to the current party.  I had heard of "Duck Dynasty" through Facebook posts, but had no idea what so many people were so enthusiastically promoting.  Then, while browsing through bookstore shelves, I stumbled across a book with a most fascinating cover--and couldn't help but take a peek inside.

With a strange look on his face, my hubby purchased a copy of "The Duck Commander Family" for me.  I devoured it in one sitting.  This is the strangest book I've ever been privileged to read...and I LOVED IT!! 

It left me happy, happy, HAPPY!!

You may think you know Willie and Korie Robertson from watching their show.  Believe me when I tell you you ain't seen nothing yet!  The book goes back to the roots of this family of faith and all things duck, and is very candid and revealing.  The faith of the Robertson family is inspiring and truly lived out in daily life.

You'll never meet another family as engaging and quirky as the Robertson clan...and you'll find yourself wishing they lived in your neighborhood!  And yes, Uncle Si is in the book, along with Jase, Phil, Miss Kay and the rest of the Duck Commander family tree.

The book also includes family recipes (each chapter is titled with a favorite family dish (like Fried Bologna, Duck Gumbo and Fried Squirrel).  I doubt you'll find another book that leaves you laughing, shedding some tears, and shaking your head at the faith-filled antics found in these pages.

I'm so glad I bought this one!  "The Duck Commander Family" is a must-read, whether you like the show or, like me, one episode is more than enough!  And the family photos...oh, how handsome Willie is underneath all that hair! 

"The Duck Commander Family" is published by Howard Books (a company founded by Korie Robertson's parents!) and is available now in bookstores and on line.  Highly, highly recommended.  Voted Best Biography/Memoir of 2013!

Happy Reading!
