Girl in the Woods

A Memoir

Girl in the Woods is Aspen Matis’s exhilarating true-life adventure of hiking from Mexico to Canada—a coming-of-age story, a survival story, and a triumphant story of overcoming emotional devastation. On her second night of college, Aspen was raped by a fellow student. Overprotected by her parents who discouraged her from speaking of the attack, Aspen was confused and ashamed. Dealing with a problem that has sadly become all too common on college campuses around the country, she stumbled through her first semester—a challenging time made even harder by the coldness of her college’s “conflict mediation” process. Her desperation growing, she made a bold decision: She would seek healing in the freedom of the wild, on the 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail leading from Mexico to Canada.

In this inspiring memoir, Aspen chronicles her journey, a five-month trek that was ambitious, dangerous, and transformative. A nineteen-year-old girl alone and lost, she conquered desolate mountain passes and met rattlesnakes, bears, and fellow desert pilgrims. Exhausted after each thirty-mile day, at times on the verge of starvation, Aspen was forced to confront her numbness, coming to terms with the sexual assault and her parents’ disappointing reaction. On the trail she found her strength, and after a thousand miles of solitude, she found a man who helped her learn to love and trust again—and heal.

"Beautiful and so wildly engaging." Lena Dunham
Portrait
After being raped on her second night at college, Aspen Matis dropped out of school to hike the Pacific Crest Trail. Trekking off into the wilderness with no experience, Aspen left her once sheltered life behind in hopes of finding a way to heal. Through her five months of struggle, Aspen faced perilous conditions that forced her to confront her inner demons. The result was a new perspective, a new life, and a new self. Inspired by the vast beauty and emotional turmoil surrounding her every day, Aspen published five essays in There & Back Magazine throughout her walk. After moving to New York City in search of fellow writers, Aspen published her adventure in The New York Times' Modern Love column to outstanding praise. She now lives in Greenwich Village, where she continues to tell her story.
