"The Duck Commander Family: How Faith, Family, and Ducks Built a Dynasty" delves deeper into the latest favorite family on TLC's television show, Duck Dynasty. This traditional family from the Louisiana bayou made its fortune by creating and selling duck calls. The millionaires still rely on many of their values ingrained before they become wealthy.

The story introduces us to the Robertson family. The relationship between the Robertson brothers is unique and we learn more about Willie, Jase, Jep, and another brother who is not featured on the television show. Parents Phil and Kay share their thoughts, and we get to look into the lives of Korie, the wife of Willie, and how she manages to raise a family and find time to look beautiful and stylish when she's constantly surrounded by duck hunters.

The Robertson's are not your typical redneck family. Despite their rise in income, they still live in the bayou and they have strong family ties. Family sticks together, and they share stories that show good times and bad, and how the family worked together to get where they are today. Since much of the family history and current decisions get made around the dinner table, chapters in the book are named by notable family dishes including "Fried Bologna," "Chicken Strips," and "Duck Gumbo."

Faith is another important facet to the Robertson family. They share unashamedly about their Christian faith, and share how it is important to their financial and personal success.

Lastly, the Robertson's share about business. Hear business tips mixed in with humorous stories that tell how the business started and how it got to where it is today.

Husband and wife team, Willie and Korie Robertson authored the story of this family. Willie is the CEO of Duck Commander which sells duck calls, clothing, and videos. Korie helped Willie take the business from a small family venture to a multimillion dollar company and continues to work as the office manager. They have four children and live in West Monroe, Louisiana.

Faith, family, ducks—in that order.

This book gives listeners 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.

Listener Opinions

    " Love the show. This was a fairly quick read based on Willie & Korie's story. A basic view of the Robertsons family view. You can tell that a lot went untold but that's ok. They obviously were careful not to bring their family into too tight a focus. It must be difficult to be so in the public eye & yet maintain a level of normalcy. It's interesting to see how sometimes a simple idea can grow beyond the thinkers original concept. A duck call that sounds like a duck. But the tale also shows how hard & persistent work pays off. "

    " I love Duck Dynasty! This book was basically behind the scenes information on how this family has come to be the people we know and love on TV. Such a sweet story of how God leads those who make room for Him to do so. "

    " This book could have been 100 pages shorter. The first half was interesting and funny but the second half was just a repeat of how much family means to them. I would borrow this book but I wouldn't pay for it. "
