Written by Willie Robertson, from Duck Dynasty, along with William Doyle, this book is filled with stories of hunting expeditions of the Robertson family. It also has stories of how hunting and hunters shaped America. Stories from Native American tribes to pioneers like Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett. Stories of how the introduction of long rifles changed the face of North American hunting. Also included are stories of our early American government leaders such as Presidents Washington and Jefferson, and Teddy Roosevelt who were avid hunters and sportsmen. You will also find in this book, scriptural references to hunting, fishing and feeding your family. An all-inclusive book about the sport of hunting, and how it has been part of the history of America. Interestingly enough the book included many women hunters who have made their own names famous over history. There is no shortage of famous people in this book, people that little boys and girls have looked up to for years. I have to say this book wasn't my normal genre of reading material, but it was an interesting read of the many hunters across the generations. If you're a history buff, this book will definitely peak your interest. 4 stars from this reviewer. This book was provided for review purposes only and no payment was received for this review.
