Ducks, Love, and Family

The Duck Commander Family: how faith, family, and ducks created a dynasty 

by Willie and Korie Robertson 

If you are NOT watching the reality show Duck Dynasty on A&E, you are missing out. Duck Dynasty follows the Robertson family, who created the company Duck Commander. Duck Commander is best known for it's duck calls. The patriarch of the family, Phil Robertson, a renowned duck hunter,  is a no-nonsense gentleman that believes in faith, family, and ducks. 

Phil and his wife Kay have four sons. The best known are Willie and Jase. Much of Duck Dynasty follows their antics at the offices of Duck Commander, of which Willie is now CEO, and their family, which includes Phil, Kay, and eccentric Uncle Si (my favorite). Si, a retired Vietnam Vet, tells hilarious tall tales of his adventures in the army and beyond, all while carrying his Tupperware glass of tea that never leaves his side.

The book, written by Willie and his wife Korie, documents the family's struggles and determination to make good. It follows the history of Duck Commander, which Phil founded, and how faith, family, and ducks made a million dollar empire. Willie and Korie share recipes, family anecdotes, and elaborate on how hard work, faith, and good fortune have turned their lives around. 

A recommended read for all Duck Dynasty fans, as well as those wondering what all the fuss is about.
