"THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT OF THE EARLY WORKS ON THE NORTH AMERICAN INDIANS, AND THE FIRST PRINTED HURON VOCABULARY.. His work is rich in its details of Indian manners, beliefs, and language, and is the main authority for the history of the recollect missions from 1615 to their expulsion in 1629" (Church).

Sagard-Theodat travelled in 1624 to Quebec as a missionary, where he lived with the Huron Indians for a short while; his mission was curtailed by the difficulties of the environment. He wrote this account of his time there on his return to Paris, including the first printed Huron vocabulary.
