5.0 out of 5 stars Self-Sufficency and Off Grid living December 14, 2011
I've loved Backwoods home for years! I save every issue. I'm thrilled about the Kindle edition. Anyone interested in living off-grid, or anyone that just wants to grow a container garden or raise a few backyard chickens should read this magazine. Canning food, root cellars, recipes, solar panels, firearms, raising live stock, gardening, house building, you name it, it's in there. The writers are down-to earth and realize not everyone has the money to buy everything out of the box, some of us have to improvise. These folks will help you do it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Backwoods Home Family December 14, 2011
By Jay
I have been a subscriber for about ten years now and this is the only magazine I keep. Every issue is full of useful information, some for right now, and some for future reference. Practical and down to earth, this magazine is also extremely well written and well edited. Not only is the choice of subject matter both diverse and well thought out, but the articles are uniformly easy to follow. I think one of the very best things about BHM is the sense of family which the staff and subscribers share. I wait for each issue, not just for the great information it contains, but to see what some of my favorite people have been up to. If you only subscribe to one magazine, this should be the one!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is NOT a book negative reviews think it is! April 15, 2012
This is a great magazine! It's NOTHING like the negative reviewers say it is. I have been subscribing to this magazine for years. The magazine is about living without relying on the government and welfare like so many do. It's a LIBERTARIAN point of view, which many people have no idea what it means. It has NOTHING to do with "people who feel threatened if they go down to the pharmacy without their handgun and who are canning bacon in preparation for the apocalypse". This magazine is for individuals without closed minded, shallow, welfare mentality.... period!

This magazine is for people who believe in self-reliance and preservation for their friends and family. People who want to learn more about growing their own food and canning it instead of throwing it away. People who want to learn more about raising their own farm animals. People who want to learn gun safety and their 2nd amendment right. there are many many recipes in this magazine every month. I have learned so much from reading it. Any home-schooled child would benefit greatly from this magazine. Closed Minded individuals, need not purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full of informative articles you can actually use. January 4, 2012
The Mother Earth News for more conservative thinking people. I've been reading the magazine for years now...just subscribed via Kindle. As always, great articles & useful information. Easy to navigate on the Kindle Touch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for learning how to do it yourself December 14, 2011
I've been s subscriber to this magazine on and off for about 3 years now. Before that I bought it off the shelf at local bookstores. When I have the money, I have this magazine. Every issue that I've bought, I've saved because each issue gives me a recipe I want to try, a new technique for gardening or canning I want to try, or just something that made me feel good about myself, and the way I life I strive to have.

Backwoods Home is a great magazine for those who en devour to reduce their footprint, yearn to get off the grid, or just like attempting to get back to nature. There's tons of variety for everyone to enjoy something.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good content, poor diagrams on Kindle display. April 16, 2012
I am a new subscriber to the Kindle edition of Backwoods Home Magazine. The content of the articles is fantastic. However, many how-to articles include technical diagrams and display very poorly for any usefulness on the Kindle. Unfortunately, this subscription does not permit display on Kindle for PC, which would correct the issue.
Update April 24, 2012:
I spoke with Backwoods Home Magazine about the diagram issue; they actually kept me updated while they inquired with Amazon. Apparently, it is Amazon's policy to not allow subscriptions viewable on Kindle for PC. I changed my rating from three to five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Magazine!! December 14, 2011
Backwoods Home is my favorite magazine ever!! It is all about self sustainable, homesteading and self reliant living. I have saved every copy I have ever gotten of this magazine. There are so many articles worth saving in each edition. Things about building, cooking, canning, preserving, things that you want to know about and refer back to. If you want to know if it is worth it to get this magazine, the answer is YES!! If you like to do things for yourself and learn new ways of doing things then this is the publication for you!

1.0 out of 5 stars VERY disappointing experience! September 7, 2014
The magazine is NOT what I expected but I decided to keep the subscription going for two or three months. What a BIG surprise to find out that, when I decided to cancel it, Amazon pulled and deleted all my back issues off my Kindle reader so I no longer had access to the ones I had already paid for!
