This publication (Backwoods Home Magazine) helps me move forward towards self reliance in the backwoods. Each issue offers over a baker's dozen of informative articles. Every piece is thoughtfully hand crafted by someone who is sucessfully living independently, while building personal skills and knowledge, and doing more with less.

Backwoods Home Magazine presents the information that gives you the ability to transistion from roughing it, to smoothing it. This information comes from experienced folks with a proven approach to daily life that applies no matter if you're home in the mountains or if you're in an urban setting with your mind in the countryside. Here's your ticket to a more enjoyable and better life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Backwoods Home is where my heart is October 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Backwoods Home magazine is a stellar publication. It's kind of like a family within a magazine cover. The writing style is overally informative and conversational. There's some quirkiness much like in every real family. I always learn something new, and feel welcomed in my journey to become more self sustaining. I often put into practice something I've learned because it's written about in such an engaging and down-to-earth way. The topics Backwoods Home writes about are not found in any other magazine I've come across. Other publications may touch on some of their niche, but nothing else comes close to Backwoods Home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Backwoods Home! October 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
My husband and I have been subsribing to Backwoods Home for about 3 years and I loved seeing it come to Kindle where I can keep all the issues and have them right at my fingertips. I use recipes from every issue and because of reading it, we have started to so many more things from a self-sufficiency aspect, even though we live in the city.

I love the gardening and seed saving information, as well as the many canning articles. We really love the Conservative views of some of the articles as well. We feel like we know the writers personally and were lucky enough to meet some of them at a recent Self Reliance Expo in our town. Jackie Clay was having her photo taken with an admirer every time we walked by the table!

Truly a wonderful, down home group and we enjoyed getting in touch with them as we read each issue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Installment of Country Wisdom! April 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I always enjoy this down-to-earth magazine. The article on extending the growing season for your veggie garden and the development of a sawmill to use native timber on your property were well worth the read. The rest well .....sometimes it's a little extreme.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Magazine! January 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Have to say, I can spend hours & hours going thru these magazines. They have great ideas & the letters from the readers are as much informative to read as some of the articles! Altho I'm sure I have the hard copy of this magazine, I love being able to read it on my Kindle anytime.
