Underland | Robert Macfarlane

“To descend into the darkness is to descend into ourselves. It is to acknowledge the dirt and the darkness as parts of being, as integral parts of conscious and living systems.” Macfarlane’s transcendent exploration of deep time, interconnectedness, psychology and myth-making is told through the human and natural history of all that is hidden from the light. Travelling to subterranean rivers, ancient caves, underground networks and burial chambers, the acclaimed nature writer brings poetic sensibility, vivid storytelling, scientific insight, and a celebratory curiosity to bear on the interconnectedness between the surface world and the hidden landscapes below.
