The first print issue should arrive in 12-16 weeks.
International Addresses: Magazine subscriptions offered at Amazon.com can only be shipped within the 50 United States, APO/FPO address and U.S. Protectorates. We are unable to process magazines to other destinations at this time. Please contact the magazine's publisher for further assistance.
When to Expect Your First Issue: Magazine subscriptions ordered at Amazon.com are shipped to you by the magazine's publisher. The first issue of a weekly magazine should arrive within 4-6 weeks of your order. The first issue of a monthly magazine should arrive within 12-16 weeks, unless otherwise noted.
Once you've placed an order at Amazon.com, it can take one to two weeks for your subscription to be received and scheduled by the publisher. Your subscription is then added to the publisher's next production cycle and shipped via standard mail. For example, if your monthly subscription was ordered and received by the publisher in November, and the December issue has already shipped, your order may be added to the January mailing. You can find out more information, including how to contact the publisher about your subscription, in Amazon's Magazine Subscription Manager.
Renewing Your Subscription: If you are ordering as a renewal to the same name and address as the current subscription, the publisher will add the Amazon order to your current subscription. For example, if you have 5 issues left and you add 12 through Amazon, you will now have 17 issues left on your subscription. Please note that the expiration date in the Magazine Subscription Manager will not reflect if you were already on file with the publisher. We will work with the publisher to ensure that you still receive all of the issues left on your subscription.
Publication Frequency: Magazines which show "irregular" availability are those which are not published according to a regular schedule. If you place an order for such a magazine, you will receive new issues as soon as they are available.
- Control your subscription settings anytime using Amazon's Magazine Subscription Manager.
- If you purchase the auto-renewing offer, your subscription will renew at the end of the current term. Before it renews, we will send you a reminder notice stating the term and rate then in effect. Cancel anytime.

I miss the newsprint, non-glossy paper, the substantive articles for people who really are living off the land, not cruising over it in SUV's and entertaining themselves with dreams of organic lavender.
That said, it seems to be coming around the corner to its old self again, but it's a long, slow, return I think. I am heartened by the direction it is taking, and subscribe once more to hope it'll keep going that way. I mean, just the glossy paper alone makes it suspect amongst my crew! I'll hide it when the purists come, and hope it keeps getting back to the Earth.
Each issue, which covers two months, tends to feature articles on gardening, being energy efficient/independent, DIY projects, small scale farming (like chickens or goats) and special topics on things ranging from hybrid vehicles to genetically modified corn, making your own herbal remedies to roofing options. Unlike many magazines in its genre, Mother tries to address readers whose lifestyles range from full-time homesteaders with decades of experience to sub/urban wanna-bes who are trying to maximize their tiny lots and navigate city codes on chicken coops. To me, this inclusivity gives Mother a communal feeling, letting advanced projects challenge those with experience and provide inspiration to beginners, while simple articles give beginners a place to start and serve as refresher courses for the pros.
As for the hotly debated (at least in Amazon's reviews!) "politics" of the magazine, Mother's advertisers run the gambit from liberal to conservative, libertarian, Christian, secular spiritual to downright kooky. Given that each issue has an "Every Issue is a Green Issue" seal right next to its title (Mother Earth News), I didn't find it particularly surprising that the editorial often has an environmentalist tone.
