Fergus Fleming wrote a brilliant book about the series of 19th century UK expeditions to try and find the North West Passage mentioned in this article:

Barrow's Boys: A Stirring Story of Daring, Fortitude, and Outright Lunacy

NB After I read this book I found that one of the men who died on the Franklin Expedition is buried close to where I live in Edinburgh, here is a close-up of his gravestone in Dean Cemetery:
