The wisdom contained in this journal is being lost to the new age. That makes this publication all the more valuable. A wealth of info on living off the land and being far more resourceful with your lifestyle. If you are a do-it-yourselfer, you will find lots of great info in here. From raising chickens to building cabins to homemade tipis, Backwoods Home teaches sustainability in a disposable world.

This publication gives the real-life solutions to living off-grid or living simply in the country. It's written by those who are out there doing it, not someone reading a book and lecturing everyone else about stuff they really don't know beans about. I lived off-grid from 1997 until 2015. These folks know what they are talking about.

Backwoods Home Magazine is encyclopedic in knowledge and skills for those brave enough to live in out-of-the-way places. Very readable. Very enjoyable. This is an antidote for much of the nonsense of modern living.
