Opis towaru

The highly anticipated new book from the internationally bestselling, prize-winning author of Landmarks, The Lost Words and The Old Ways

‚You’d be crazy not to read this book’ The Sunday Times

‚Underland is a magnificent feat of writing, travelling and thinking that feels genuinely frontier pushing, unsettling and exploratory’ Evening Standard

‚Marvellous… Neverending curiosity, generosity of spirit, erudition, bravery and clarity… This is a book well worth reading’ The Times

‚Extraordinary… at once learned and readable, thrilling and beautifully written’ Observer

‚Attentive, thoughtful, finely honed… I turned the last page with the unusual conviction of having been in the company of a fine writer who is – who must surely be – a good man’ Telegraph

‚Poetry, science, a healthy sense of the uncanny and a touch of the shamanic are the hallmarks of his writing… This is a journey that tells the story not just of nature but of human nature. And there is noone I would more gladly follow on it’ i

‚Startling and memorable, charting invisible and vanishing worlds. Macfarlane has made himself Orpheus, the poet who ventures down to the darkest depths and returns – frighteningly alone-to sing of what he has seen’ New Statesman

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.

‚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 onThe 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 onThe Old Ways
