In the Kingdom of Ice by Hampton Sides.
This book follows the Arctic exploration journey of the U.S.S. Jeannette and its crew. The author takes you through all of the preparations for the voyage, the hardship of being stranded in Arctic ice for over two years, and the desperate struggle to make it out alive. It is also full of background history on earlier, and later, explorations of the Arctic region.
