Author and inspirational speaker Jean Muenchrath wrote her memoir, If I Live Until Morning, A True Story of Adventure, Tragedy and Transformation, to heal herself and to inspire others to live their dreams and to find the courage to deal with their life’s greatest challenges. Muenchrath’s Colorado childhood gave her an insatiable appetite for mountain adventures. She loves to explore wild places under the power of her own two feet, and to feel the connection between her heart and soul and the natural world. She has traveled throughout North and South America and Asia. Her journeys have broadened her perspective about herself, humanity and the planet we share. She has been a park ranger with the National Park Service for over three decades, led trekking tours in Nepal and Thailand, and worked in Bhutan with the World Wildlife Fund. To balance her outer and inner worlds, she spends two months a year in solitary retreat. 100% of the proceeds from her book are donated to charity.
