It’s all about the food….
For the Robertsons, family is typified by the dinner table, where both food and fables are dished up with equal care. Anyone with a good story - whether it be a hunting escapade or one of the children’s antics - is welcome to share. And that’s what this family is all about - sharing, caring for one another, and the love of good food. Chapters are built around recipes that represent each stage of the Robertson life - chapters like...
An Up-Close View of America’s Favorite Backwoods Family
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 the Robertson family went from eating fried bologna sandwiches to consuming fine filet mignon.
Ask anyone in 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 Robertsons’ 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 eight-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.

I mainly listened to this book because I was interested in how this family built their company, from a business aspect. The book really consists of the business stuff, the family stuff, hunting stuff, and recipes. The family stuff was good, but I have read lots of "advice about kids and marriage" family books so this was stuff I'd already heard and I fast forwarded through a lot of it. The hunting/fishing stuff I'm not really interested in so I fast forwarded through that. The recipes - well I don't cook and even if I did, not sure if I'd want to hear recipes read, so I fast forwarded through that. But the business stuff, which is the main reason I listened, was interesting! I'm not saying the book was bad, just for me it wasn't all information I was interested in. Seemed a little repetitive with the concepts at times too. Like "We all have different gifts and we all appreciate each others' differences." Seemed like that was said a lot.
Great behinds the scenes insights on the family. Korie tells her story
Some of Willies stories can be found in Phil's book, but this book lets Korie tell her story. You will also learn more about some of the other regular recurring cast.
Love the show loved the family. Absolutely love this book! It is an actual testimony of how God built the Duck Dynasty! I laughed and I cried! This book will encourage you! Women this book will challenge you to stand by your man! God isn't finished with him yet! I loved that it is read by Willie and Korie Robertson. I have to read it again! I learned that My best isn't necessarily Gods best for our life! There are not enough positive adjectives to describe this book. Thank you for renewing the hope Robertson family!!!!!!!!
I could not turn it off....very interesting life story. If you watch the shpw, you will really like the book.
Wille's voice draws you in and want you to hear more, what a great story!
the family story's and closeness.
I loved the audio.
All the characters were fun.
All of them
The whole book was filled with faith and family, lots of great recipes
I just love watching this family on t.v. and now I have really enjoyed this book too. It gives a bit of background of Willie and Jace's younger years, a bit of information of the early marriage of Phil and Kay. It is entertaining and also has a few recipes included. A likable read.
This is a great listen. The stories are funny and well read.
The background of the family is very interesting, moving and funny, especially Phil & Kay's early struggles and the very different backgrounds of Willie & Korie.
If you watch the show, you will enjoy hearing Willie and Korie's voices. It is great listening to their own experiences.
This will quack you up!
We listened to this on a trip between Michigan and Florida and it made the time go by quickly with many good laughs.
Yes, because it's a wonderful storyline about a real family growing up through struggles, debt, family issues and the usual problems with most Americans. It's great hearing Willie telling stories about he and his brother's rivalries.
How every story and chapter was based on a bible verse and how the family used the verse in real world application.
Willie was my favorite to listen to because he was the younger brother to Jase and told stories of how Jase and Allen both picked on him growing up. I could relate because I'm a younger brother.
Yes, and I did so on a long road trip by myself. It never dulled and always kept me alert. It was a great story of coming from nothing and ending up successful millionaires the "good ole fashion way". I have a tremendous respect for how this family has succeeded. They weren't given breaks, they worked their way to the top due to their Christian upbringings and dedication to succeed.
