If you’ve never watched an episode of Duck Dynasty on A&E you really should check it out. Not only will they make you laugh but you’ll also learn more about faith and family along the way. Find out more about the show here. Here are 3 books from the stars of Duck Dynasty that I think you’ll enjoy:
- The Duck Commander Family: How Faith, Family, and Ducks Created a Dynasty by Willie & Korie Robertson
“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.”
Erich’s note: the fourth brother, Alan aka @BeardlessBro, is now part of the series (he appeared in episode one of the 4th season which just happened to be the highest rated show to date and will make an appearance at our Men’s Conference at The Hills in January of 2014 — look for details later this fall). Alan’s book, The Duck Commander Devotional, will come out around October 15.
- Happy, Happy, Happy by Phil Robertson
“This no-holds-barred autobiography chronicles the remarkable life of Phil Robertson, the original Duck Commander and Duck Dynasty star, from early childhood through the founding of a family business. Duck calls—though the source of his livelihood—are not what makes Phil Robertson the man he is today. When asked what matters in his life, he’s quick to say, “Faith, family, ducks—in that order.” It isn’t often that a person can live a dream, but Phil Robertson, aka The Duck Commander, has proven that it is possible with vision, hard work, helping hands, and an unshakable faith in the Almighty. Phil’s is the remarkable story of one man who followed the call he received from God and soon after invented a duck call that would begin an incredible journey to the life he had always dreamed of for himself and his family. In the love of his country, his family, and his maker, Phil has finally found the ingredients to the “good life” he always wanted.”
- Si-cology 1 by Si Robertson
“You know him from the hit A&E show Duck Dynasty—now you can enjoy Uncle Si’s tall tales, crazy exploits, and quirky one-liners in one raucous collection! …Sure to please die-hard fans and curious newbies alike, Si’s one-liners are presented alongside fun, expressive photographs, as well as photos of his family. As you learn about his behind-the-scenes life, this smattering of zany stories will have you falling over with laughter and retelling them to all your friends.”
Erich’s note: I loved the first one (see the recipes at the end of each chapter — we enjoyed Willie’s Fried Bologna Sandwiches and plan to try the Willie Burgers soon), plan to read Phil’s soon (scanned through recently, looks like a great read), and recently pre-ordered Si’s book (it came in yesterday). If you don’t already watch the show you really should check it out. The Robertson family is from West Monroe, LA and are members and serve at White’s Ferry Road Church of Christ (faith and family really do come first).
Your turn… If you watch the show or have read any of these books take a moment to comment and share your thoughts. Thanks!
