  • MOTHER EARTH NEWS ARCHIVE 1970-2017: CLASSIC USB DRIVE

    In 2003, we introduced an archive of all Mother Earth News' issues from the 1970s on CD-ROM, presenting a new way of accessing past issues of the magazine in a digital environment. Thousands of readers responded to the notion of being able to sift through our first decade at the click of a mouse, and to the ability to search for what specifically interested them.

    Following that success, we continued to expand the archive to cover more of the magazine's past issues on disc. Also available is the Multiplatform Edition, which makes the magazine content available not just on desktop and laptop computers, but also via smartphones and the multitude of portable reading devices that have become so ubiquitous. Now, we are pleased to reintroduce the classic version of the archive, for the first time with enhanced search functionality across Mother's entire 48-year history. With this version of the archive, you can search for articles about earth-sheltered homes, cheap solar power, organic gardening techniques, raising chickens, beekeeping, do-it-yourself projects and much more.

    Mother Earth News has also published hundreds of healthy, down-to-earth recipes, and the archive includes all the delicious directions we've published in the magazine. From strawberry jam and homemade jerky to hummus and morel mushroom quiche, you'll find something to satisfy every appetite.

    Find almost every story, tip and technique published in the magazine and online from 1970-2017 … more than 21,000 articles!

    Confused about the difference between our two archive products? These are the key distinctions:

    • The Multiplatform Edition contains files for each year of the magazine in a format that can be transferred for viewing and searching on multiple devices. The content can only be viewed and searched year by year.
    • The Classic Edition provides a browser-based interface for accessing the archive on your desktop computer or laptop. You can do advanced searches and view content from the entire 48-year archive, all at once!

    TECHNICAL INFORMATION
    The archive content is now available on USB flash drives. Increasingly, computers and laptops are sold without DVD drives but with USB ports. With the archive available on a USB flash drive, you can upload and access Mother Earth News articles without needing an external DVD drive. Note: Some tablets and mobile devices are equipped with USB ports, allowing access to archive content without having to first upload the flash drive's content to a computer.

    The Classic Archive Edition on USB may also be used on tablets equipped with USB ports (Android or Windows tablets). At least 1.6 GB of storage space is recommended for it to run the most efficiently on these devices.

    Please Note: We recommend using the Firefox Web browser to view this USB. You can download Firefox here.
