The Story of Helen and Frank Schreider
Helen and Frank wrote their first book, 20,000 Miles South, upon their return from their first journey from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego in 1956. In fact, Frank wrote the first three chapters on the cruise ship that they took home from Ushuaia at the end of the trip, then sold them to Doubleday immediately. Drums of Tonkin came next, after their Indonesia trip in 1961. The Amazon was published after their 1969 Amazon Journey, but they never considered it their book. Although Frank wrote it, he wasn't allowed to publish his true findings and the photos were not all from their journey.
