The Lost Men: The Harrowing Sage of Shackleton's Ross Sea Party by Kelly Tyler-Lewis (2006).

Not everyone survives the 1914-1917 journey. Since every man was tasked with keeping a journal, there are liberal first-hand quotes within the text. Interesting reading, especially on cold winter nights from inside the safety of modern housing and heating.
