A&E’s ‘Duck Dynasty’ is continuing to skyrocket in ratings. With hilarious adventures, quirky lines, God and family values, and good ole’ down home fun, the bearded men in camo have gained countless fans across the country. As the man behind the famous duck calls that made the Robertson family millionaires, Phil Robertson comes with an interesting story. According to a Starcasm report dated Monday, March 18, Phil will be sharing that story in an autobiography called ‘Happy, Happy, Happy: My Life and Legacy as the Duck Commander,’ due out on Amazon May 7.
The publisher revealed that the book will follow Phil from his early childhood all the way to founding the successful family business.
The description as listed on Amazon says,
“Life was always getting in the way of Phil Robertson’s passion for duck hunting. An NFL-bound quarterback, Phil made his mark on Louisiana Tech University in the 1960s by playing football and completing his college career with a master’s degree in English. But Phil’s eyes were nto always on the books or the ball; they were usually looking to the sky.”
“Phil grew up with the dream of living the simple life off the land like his forebears, but he soon found himself on a path to self-destruction—leasing a bar, drinking too much, fighting, and wasting his talents. He almost lost it all until he gave his life to God. And then everything changed.”
“Phil’s incredible story tells how he followed a calling 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. With great love for his country, his family, and his maker, Phil has finally found the ingredients to the “good life” he always wanted.”
A video in which Phil gives a partial testimony has recently been released. Miss Kay’s husband acknowledges past mistakes, and makes it known that it is Jesus Christ’s transformation that has made him who he is today. It sounds as though his upcoming book will more specifically share his journey.
Notably, Phil’s older brother James F. Robertson is the writer of the book which was first published in 2011. At the top of the book cover, it says, “Previously Published as Legend of the Duck Commander.” Interestingly, the Robertson boys must have some serious writing skills. While Phil majored in English, James has been an accomplished journalist for more than 50 years. He and Phil were raised in a three-room log cabin along, and were each one of the 7 children.
The backstory of the backwoods hunting enthusiast should keep duckaholics entertained for hours. Needless to say, ‘Duck Dynasty’ fans are happy, happy, happy about this upcoming release.
