About this book

The renowned naturalist's highly anticipated sequel to the international bestseller The Old Ways: a haunting voyage into the planet's past and future.

Hailed as "the great nature writer of this generation" (Wall Street Journal), Robert Macfarlane is the celebrated author of prize-winning books about the intersection between the human and the natural world. In Underland, he delivers his masterwork: an epic exploration of Earth's vast subterranean landscape in myth, literature, and his own travels.

Delving into what is known as "deep time", the dizzying expanse of geologic time that stretches away from the present, Macfarlane takes us on an exhilarating journey to Arctic sea caves, Bronze Age burial chambers, the catacombs of Paris, the underground networks by which trees communicate, a Dark Matter research lab searching for the origins of the universe, and a Deep Geological Repository designed to store nuclear waste for half a million years to come.

Underland reveals our shifting relationship with the world beneath us: the viruses and lethal gases we've unearthed, the toxic dangers we've buried, the millions of miles of holes we've dug in our fevered search for oil and gas.
