Underland by Robert MacFarlane

  • "I truly believe that Robert Macfarlane is one of the best writers of our day. In this rich book, he examines time--using as his prism, our underground world. He takes us to ice caves, Parisian catacombs, root systems, to Greenland, Italy, and Norway. He weaves poetry, history, philosophy, and science in along the way. Mind bogglingly good!" -- Sarah

  • Discover the hidden worlds beneath our feet...

    In Underland, Robert Macfarlane takes us on a journey into the worlds beneath our feet. From the ice-blue depths of Greenland's glaciers, to the underground networks by which trees communicate, from Bronze Age burial chambers to the rock art of remote Arctic sea-caves, this is a deep-time voyage into the planet's past and future. Global in its geography, gripping in its voice and haunting in its implications, Underland is a work of huge range and power, and a remarkable new chapter in Macfarlane's long-term exploration of landscape and the human heart.
