Because In Chapter 8 Winnie comes to realize that the dangers and fears people had told her were there were not evident.  She had encountered Jessie and his family and feels safe.  The forest is beautiful and accepting of her.  The earth smells good and pleasant.  The fears that she had once had have now escaped her and she feels like she could live in the forest.  She has been told the story about the water that has kept the family alive, never growing older and never dieing.  She looks around her surroundings and thinks that she too could enjoy life in the forest like them.
