Underland: A Deep Time Journey By Robert MacFarlane, Matthew Waterson (Read by) Cover Image

Staff Reviews

Robert Macfarlane has outdone himself with Underland, an exploration of our complex relationship with the world beneath our feet. With characteristic insight and crystalline prose, Macfarlane shines a light into the murky depths, and in so doing illuminating the deep past, the crumbling present, and the far distant future. A masterpiece.

June 2019 Indie Next List

“I don’t think there is a square mile of ground on this planet where Robert Macfarlane couldn’t dig up a new, wondrous story. Underland continues the tradition of profound storytelling, reflection, and, quite simply, gorgeous writing we have come to expect from him. Macfarlane’s ventures into the underworlds of our planet, both mythical and literal, may amount to his finest work yet, and not just because these are the places that have captivated me most throughout my life. I feel fortunate to be living at the same time as him, knowing that as long as he is writing, there is something to look forward to.”
