Here's a book for you--Shackleton's Forgotten Men: The Untold Tradegy of the Endurance Epic by Lennard Bickel. It's an excellent account of Shackleton's "support staff" charged with setting up the food caches for Shackleton to use during his trek across the continent. It's amazing and heartbreaking at the same time.

Thanks, I’ll look it up. I’ve read many of Shackleton’s biographers and would happily read more.
