Willie Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” lore is in the news again with a new book sure to delight fans who know his family’s story.

His nonfiction work, entitled “American Entrepreneur” details the “incredible stories” of American entrepreneurship and according to Fox News is slated to be released November 13.

"The book is about entrepreneurs in America and their incredible stories," Robertson said.

"As an entrepreneur myself, and the son of a man who put everything he had on the line to follow his dream, I know first hand what it takes to start a successful business in America."

Willie’s father, Phil, turned his humble duck call manufacturing business into a multi-million-dollar company. Robertson details the path of that success in his book. The 46-year-old said he wanted to write the book in part because he wanted to help answer questions in how to start a business and make it profitable.

"I wrote about those who braved the risks to pursue their passion, and to find out what we can learn from their stories," the businessman explained. "How other people did it, what challenges they faced and why they didn’t give up are all questions that I wanted to answer."

The Robertson story is only one of several included in the book that will help encourage Americans young and old to pursue their dreams and to not give up in the face of opposition.

"I hope readers will be inspired and encouraged by the amazing stories of people who overcame enormous hurdles and brought us many of the companies we know today," he shared.
