According to his account he remained for fifteen years. In that time he familiarized himself with the local Indians, and the fauna and the flora of the area. Thomas presents very focused information about local Indians, from their costumes to their language: "Their Language is Lofty and Elegant, but not Copious; One Word serveth in the stead of Three, imperfect and ungrammatical, which defects are supply'd by the Understanding of the Hearers. Sweet, of Noble Sound and Accent."
The important map is only the second detailed depiction of the area and was compiled by London mapmaker Philip Lea with Thomas' assistance.
