Underland

ebook

Follow Robert Macfarlane to the furthest corners of the globe....

A SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

WINNER OF THE WAINWRIGHT PRIZE 2019
WINNER OF THE STANFORD DOLMAN TRAVEL BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD 2020
'You'd be crazy not to read this book' The Sunday Times
A Guardian Best Book of the 21st Century
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.
SHORTLISTED FOR THE RSL ONDAATJE PRIZE 2020

The Irish Times
'He is the great nature writer, and nature poet, of this generation' Wall Street Journal
'Macfarlane has shown how utterly beautiful a brilliantly written travel book can still be' Observer on The Old Ways

'It sets the imagination tingling...like reading a prose Odyssey sprinkled with imagist poems' The Sunday Times on The Old Ways
