Samuel de Champlain published Voyages and Discoveries, an account of his time in New France from 1615 to 1618, his last voyage of exploration. He had spent much of the time in Huronia, and his book detailed the life of the Huron peoples. When he returned to New France in 1620, he devoted his time to building the French colony at what is now Québec City.
