LIVING THE DREAM
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.”
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.
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.
