Join West Cornwall Friends of the Earth for a talk by the author, Dr Kate Rawles, talking about her book 'The Carbon Cycle' - shortlisted for Banff Mountain Festival Adventure Travel Book Awards, 2012

The Carbon Cycle; Crossing the Great Divide (Two Ravens Press 2012) is based on Kate's bike ride from Texas to Alaska exploring attitudes to climate change, was shortlisted for the Banff Mountain Festival Adventure Travel Book Awards and a runner up in the UK People's Book Prize.
