Underland: A Deep Time Journey
Underland: A Deep Time Journey, takes us on a global tour of what is and has been beneath the surface of the earth. On one page we’re thinking about the moment of creation, on another we’re peering at cave paintings and thinking about that part of the past, and then we find ourselves wondering about our stewardship of the earth and what lies ahead for our planet. He takes us to the Paris catacombs and to a place where nuclear waste is stored. MacFarlane’s writing is as beautiful as the world he calls on us to notice. I haven’t experienced this much awe since reading Carl Sagan. Most readers will finish this book as I did: feeling a closer connection to those and what has come before us. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Underland from amazon.com.
