A SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER


WINNER OF THE WAINWRIGHT PRIZE 2019

‘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

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

‘Irradiated by a profound sense of wonder … Few books give such a sense of enchantment; it is a book to give to many, and to return to repeatedly’ Independent on Landmarks

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