Book Review - The Duck Commander Family: How Faith, Family and Ducks Built A Dynasty by Willie and Korie Robertson

I'm going camo for the rest of the week as I review five of the available books regarding the Robertson Family of Duck Dynasty Fame! 

The first book, "The Duck Commander Family," from DC CEO Willie Robertson and his wife Korie, gives readers a great introduction to the Robertson family and their rise to fame.

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.

My Thoughts:

I'll admit it - I LOVE Duck Dynasty!  I faithfully watch every Wednesday and usually pick up on some of the show's re-runs when possible.  So, I was very interested in learning more about this fascinating family that has taken over the media world!

Through the remembrances of Willie Robertson, and his wife Korie, readers will learn about the family's early days, their hard upbringing, and the struggles the family went through as father Phil began his duck call company.  Some of the memories are funny, some are poignant, and some are down-right heartbreaking, but the overall message of this book is that this is a family that stuck together, through thick and thin, and have managed to keep their humor, their love of family and friends, and above all, their faith in God to see them through.

As a bonus, all through the book are Robertson family recipes, mostly from Willie (Korie admits she's not a cook!), as well as plenty of photos of the family.

I enjoyed reading this book and learning more about this Louisiana family that has taken the world by storm.  I think it's wonderful that they continue to stand up for what they believe in with no apologies or regrets - and I think the world might be a little bit better for their contribution to it!
