Underland by Robert Macfarlane

The highly anticipated new book from the internationally bestselling, prize-winning author of Landmarks, The Lost Words and The Old Ways

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.

Peer & Press Reviews

Underland is a magnificent feat of writing, travelling and thinking that feels genuinely frontier pushing, unsettling and exploratory.

Evening Standard

Poetry, science, a healthy sense of the uncanny and a touch of the shamanic are the hallmarks of his writing…  This is a journey that tells the story not just of nature but of human nature.  And there is no one I would more gladly follow on it.

Rebecca Armstrong, i paper

Macfarlane has invented a new kind of book, really a new genre entirely.
