Product description

Review

[Robert Macfarlane's] writing is luminous, intense....[B]rilliant notes from the underground.--Huw Lewis-Jones

An excellent book--fearless and subtle, empathic and strange.--Dwight Garner

The most impressive exercise of imagination and scholarship I've come across lately....A reader never will forget this journey through geologic time.--Tony Norman

[Macfarlane] seems to metabolize landscape into lyrics as he walks.--Rachel Riederer

One of the most ambitious works of narrative non-fiction of our age.--William Dalrymple

Profound in every sense of the word.--Richard Powers, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Overstory

Reading Macfarlane connects us to dazzling new worlds. It's a connection that brings, more than anything else, joy.--Barbara J. King

Through this series of haunting descents, Macfarlane plumbs the strange and alarming ways we've changed the world and resurfaces with revelations about how to orient us to the future, weaving landscape and language together.--Kate Yoder
