Discover the hidden worlds beneath our feet...


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.

'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 onThe Old Ways


Bertrams Buyer's Notes:

A new literary blockbuster from the author of }The Old Ways{, with Macfarlane exploring the underground landscapes of the man-made and natural world, bringing together the lyrical, political and philosophical in mycelical networks, glacial moulins, Bronze Age burial chambers and more.
