Underland: A Deep Time Journey Cover Image

Macfarlane has been hailed by The Wall Street Journal as “the great nature writer of this generation,” and his beautiful and wise books—Mountains of the Mind, The Wild Places, The Old Ways, and Landmarks—don’t just show us marvelous landscapes, they explore the traditions, beliefs, and language these places have fostered. His new book delves even further, exploring the “deep time” of caves, glaciers, and burial chambers as well as reflecting on the meaning of our most ancient myths and primal dreams. In a wide-ranging look at the wonderlands beneath our feet—from geological formations of limestone and karst to the ancient art in Lascaux and Chauvet to the many surprises of the Paris catacombs—Macfarlane takes us on a unique and unforgettable adventure. Macfarlane will be in conversation with Ross Andersen, senior editor at The Atlantic.
