The Duck Commander Family by Willie and Korie Robertson (A book review)

The Duck Commander Family: How Faith, Family, and Ducks Built a Dynasty

Published by:  Howard Books  – A Division of Simon & Schuster Inc.

Okay guys… I knew I loved these redneck people from Louisiana because I’m a Duck Dynasty fanatic BUT I really didn’t expect to love this book so much.  I figured the Robertson’s were maybe a little illiterate?  I’m pleasantly surprised to be wrong.  This might be a secret but I think you should all know that the Robertson sons appear to really be “Yuppies” disguised as rednecks.  Although Phil (the dad) is a true redneck. AND a lovable one, at that! They’re spiritual, yet REAL and very intelligent!  I could NOT put this book down.  There’s a reason it made the New York Times Best Sellers List!  I laughed and fell in love with this family even more than I already was.  Now I need to figure out how to get them to adopt me into their family!  lol

Here’s the scoop from back cover:

“What do faith, family, ducks and money have in common?  The well-known stars of A&E’s hit show DUCK DYNASTY – Korie and Willie Robertson!  From Louisiana’s Bayou comes the story of how he Robertson family went from eating fried bologna sandwiches to consuming fine filet mignon.

Ask anyone from Louisiana, and they’ll tell you that the bayou state’s favorite family doesn’t live in the governor’s mansion but in the backwoods, where the Robertson’s Duck Commander has become a sporting empire by making top-of-the-line duck calls.

Part redneck logic, part humorous family stories, combined with family business tips and faith, this book is the inside sneak peek for everything you wanted to know about being a Robertson.

In the pages of this book, you’ll find out things about this lovable family that you won’t see on the popular TV show – such as how the family survived while Miss Kay worked days and left the boys in the care of 8 year old older brother Alan.  You’ll get to know the beautiful Korie Robertson – how she met Willie, what their dating days were like, and how she juggles being a mom to their children, a wife to Willie, and an active partner in the family business.

You’ll get a taste of the Robertson clan’s famous food, through recipes included in each chapter, and you’ll see childhood photos of Willie and Korie, photos of Willie before the beard, and photos of their children and all of the Robertson clan.”

So to recap….  READ this book!  I don’t see how you’d be sorry!  🙂
