Unabridged Audiobook

Narrated By: Phil Robertson

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Summary:

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.

If you ever wind up sitting face-to-face with Phil, you'll see that his enthusiasm and passion for duck hunting and the Lord is no act-it is truly who he is.

The Call of the Wild

If you've 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 don't know is his life before the show. In the pages of this book, you'll learn of Phil's colorful past and his wild road to the "happy, happy, happy" life he leads today. Before the "happy," Phil's 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 "romping, stomping, and ripping" 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 "called" 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 call-and finally, called to follow God and lead a life of faith.

In this eye-opening and rousing book, you'll find stories that will shock you, as well as those that will inspire you. You'll get to know the man behind the legend, and you'll come away better for it.

Genres:

  • Barbara Fitzgerald

    I love this humble family! If we could only follow their example!

  • Lora Trimble

    I have been there, done that. Bought the shirt. What else can I say? What else is there to say? The most important lessons are most often those things we must wade through by ourselves and live to recognize the truths for ourselves .

  • Brenda Hine

    I have a whole new respect for this wonderful family and all they have gone through without giving up or in. God Blessed them. Wonderful book.

  • Brian Wills

    Great stuff! Got too detailed with technicalities of duck hunting for the layman, but absolutely loved it as did my kids. More Duck Dynasty!

  • Holly Purves

    I read the book first in hard copy; I loved it. Now I want to listen to it where ever the road takes me.

  • Ozella Modarres

    This book is soothing to a woman's soul. This is a whole family that has order correct, God, family, and friends. I plan to buy a hard copy and give it to my beloved son in law. He is a young man who is a relatively new Christian with three young sons and a daughter on the way. I think that being able to watch duck dynasty is such a treat too. I know Mr. Phil coined happy, happy, happy but that is just how I feel watching the show and now reading this book. It is like a miracle to have a show that anyone can watch and not be fearful that your grandchildren might be listening. Better still is the freedom of watching a Christian family not be afraid but rather exalt our Savior by ending their show with a prayer. In a time when our country is falling so far from our founding fathers faith, the Robertson clan are a clean, beautiful refreshing and hopeful breath of pure bliss to me. I even do not mind that my baby sister wears a tee shirt that says Sy is my role model.
