Underland

A Deep Time Journey




From the bestselling, multi-award-winning author of Landmarks, The Old Ways and The Lost Words - an unmissable journey into the hidden worlds beneath our feet

A journey into the concealed geographies of the ground beneath our feet - the hidden regions beneath the visible surfaces of the world.

From the vast below-ground mycelial networks by which trees communicate, to the ice-blue depths of glacial moulins, and from North Yorkshire to the Lofoten Islands, Robert Macfarlane traces an uncharted, deep-time voyage. Underland is a thrilling new chapter in the author's long-term exploration of the relations of landscape and the human heart.
