NON-FICTION BOOK OF THE MONTH

Underland by Robert Macfarlane

Underland is an epic exploration of the Earth’s underworlds as they exist in myth, literature, memory, and the land itself. Robert Macfarlane moves from the birth of the universe to a post-human future, from the prehistoric art of Norwegian sea caves to the blue depths of the Greenland ice cap, from Bronze Age funeral chambers to the catacomb labyrinth below Paris, and from the underground networks through which trees communicate to a deep-sunk “hiding place” where nuclear waste will be stored for 100,000 years to come. Macfarlane asks a vital and unsettling question: “Are we being good ancestors to the future Earth?”

Global in its geography and written with great lyricism and power, Underland speaks powerfully to our present moment, mapping of the relations of landscape and the human heart.
