Description:

From the top rated, grant winning creator of Landmarks and The Old Ways, a frightful journey into the planet's past and future. 

Hailed as "the extraordinary nature essayist of this age" (Wall Street Journal), Robert Macfarlane is the praised writer of books about the convergences of the human and the regular domains. In Underland, he conveys his perfect work of art: an epic investigation of the Earth's underworlds as they exist in legend, writing, memory, and the land itself. 

In this exceptionally foreseen spin-off of his universal smash hit The Old Ways, Macfarlane takes us on a remarkable excursion into our relationship with haziness, entombment, and what lies underneath the outside of both spot and brain. Going through "profound time"the confounding fields of geologic time that stretch away from the present he moves from the introduction of the universe to a post-human future, from the ancient craft of Norwegian ocean caverns to the blue profundities of the Greenland ice top, from Bronze Age burial service loads to the sepulcher maze underneath Paris, and from the underground parasitic systems through which trees impart to a profound sunk "concealing spot" where atomic waste will be put away for a long time to come. Woven through Macfarlane's own movements are the life-changing accounts of plummets into the underland made across history by travelers, craftsmen, cavers, jumpers, grievers, visionaries, and killers, every one of whom have been attracted for various motivations to look for what Cormac McCarthy calls "the horrendous haziness inside the world." 

Worldwide in its geology and composed with extraordinary lyricism and force, Underland talks capably to our current second. Taking a profound time perspective on our planet, Macfarlane here asks an indispensable and disrupting inquiry: "Are we being acceptable progenitors to the future Earth?" Underland marks another turn in Macfarlane's drawn out mapping of the relations of scene and the human heart. From its striking opening pages to its profoundly moving decision, it is an excursion into wonder, misfortune, dread, and expectation. On the double old and earnest, this is a book that will change the manner in which you see the world.
