My Life and Legacy as the Duck Commander
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. LIVING THE DREAM Duck callsâthough the source of his livelihoodâare not what makes Phil Robertson the man he is today. When asked what matters in his life, heâs quick to say, âFaith, family, ducksâin that order.â It isnât 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. Philâs 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 âgood lifeâ he always wanted. If you ever wind up sitting face-to-face with Phil, youâll see that his enthusiasm and passion for duck hunting and the Lord is no actâit is truly who he is. If youâve watched the exceedingly popular A&E® program Duck Dynasty®, you already know the famed Phil Robertson. As patriarch of the Robertson clan and creator of Duck Commander duck calls, he fearlessly leads his family in a responsible work ethic and an active faith. But what you donât know is his life before the show. In the pages of this book, youâll learn of Philâs colorful past and his wild road to the âhappy, happy, happyâ life he leads today. Before the âhappy,â Philâs passion for the outdoors and wild living led him down some shady paths. As a young husband and father, he became the proprietor of a rough bar and lived a life, as he says, of âromping, stomping, and rippingâ for a number of years. He even left his wife and young boys for a short period of time. Through it all, Phil Robertson has lived his life as a âcalledâ man. Called to live off the land, called to leave a starring role in Louisiana Tech football (playing ahead of Terry Bradshaw) for duck hunting, called to wild living, called to create a new kind of duck callâand finally, called to follow God and lead a life of faith. In this eye-opening and rousing book, youâll find stories that will shock you, as well as those that will inspire you. Youâll get to know the man behind the legend, and youâll come away better for it.
