In this highly anticipated sequel to his international bestseller The Old Ways, author Robert Macfarlane takes readers on an extraordinary journey into our relationship with darkness, burial, and what lies beneath the surface of both place and mind.
“Hailed as ‘the great nature writer of this generation’ (Wall Street Journal), Robert Macfarlane is the celebrated author of books about the intersections of the human and the natural realms. In Underland, he delivers his masterpiece: An epic exploration of the Earth’s underworlds as they exist in myth, literature, memory, and the land itself,” said a review published in goodreads.com.
It said Underland “marks a new turn in Macfarlane’s long-term mapping of the relations of landscape and the human heart. From its remarkable opening pages to its deeply moving conclusion, it is a journey into wonder, loss, fear, and hope. At once ancient and urgent, this is a book that will change the way you see the world.”
Macfarlane is a British nature writer and literary critic.
