Publisher's Summary

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...

  • Fried Bologna: Here you’ll get an inside look at what it was like to grow up Robertson before all the fame and money came in. You’ll see the Robertson boys fending for themselves as father Phil was out running nets and selling his newly invented duck calls and matriarch Miss Kay was out working to keep the family afloat.
  • Chicken Strips: In this chapter, Willie and Korie marry when Korie is only 18 - but only after dealing with Korie’s father - and their lives are shaped and prepared to someday take the family business to another level.
  • Duck Gumbo: Just like making great gumbo takes patience and time, so did building a duck dynasty. This chapter tells of Phil’s passion and hard work in sticking with something he believed in and loved doing and how that patience and hard work has paid off.
  • Dumplings, Hot Water Cornbread, and Fried Squirrel: None of the Robertsons would be where they are today if not for Miss Kay. This chapter is all about food, family, and business, and how Miss Kay kept them all laughing through the good times and the bad.
  • Back Straps: Here you’ll learn about Willie’s passion for business, hunting, and friendship, and how all this led to his own company - Buck Commander - and his exciting encounters along the way.
  • Road Kill: The journey to a successful family business and television show has been a long one, with a few bumps in the road. This chapter tells how the family stays together rain or shine and how, as Phil says, they all remain "happy, happy, happy".

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.

Wonderful Story... Entertaining and Inspiring!

I recently discovered the Robertsons on A&E. I love their story. I enjoy their family bond and their faith in God ... and they are FUNNY!
The book provides insight into their testimony and it's read by Willie and his wife. Willie won't be able to make a living as a narrator - LOL, but I like him reading his own story.
If you like the show, you will enjoy the book.
If you've never watched the show, get the book and you will want to watch the show.

It's all about love of God and love of family....

What a blessing!

The realness of this family is beyond inspiring! They most definitely obey the James Chapter 2 command of treating others more highly than
themselves! I was made a better person by reading their book! Thank you, precious Robertson family! You are truly an example of Matthew 5 in letting your light shine so that others can see your good works and glorify your father which is in Heaven!
Thank you! In Jesus' love!

thank you for sharing!! loved reading about them!!

There were many more details of the Duck Dynasty family in this book that I didn't see by watching their family on TV. I loved hearing how their stories have unfolded and about each sibling. Most importantly, their faith in Christ and with him their unconditional love for each other. Thank you so much!
