champlain in Huronia:
He crossed through the 30,000 islands in the bay, with their challenging coastlines, but fish-filled waters, until landing on August 1 in Toanché. He was now in Huronia. He reports finding a vastly different landscape, extremely beautiful and mostly deserted, with lots of hills and streams, all of which made it very appealing.
He spent a month visiting the villages inhabited by approximately 20,000 Wendats. He like what he saw: agglomerations, villages protected by triple palisades, a well-defined hierarchy, structured trade, hillsides and countrysides, lots of waterways, fruit and corn, beans and pumpkins. The country was inhabitable, and his companion, Joseph Le Caron, lost no time trying to evangelize the people.
