I would recommend the book: Narrative Of The Arctic Land Expedition To The North Of The Great Fish River In The Years 1833, 1834, And 1835 by Captain Back, R.N.

You can download a free OCR version to a Nook, Kindle, or PC. It's a fascinating read and is the book which prompted Perkins to go on his solo.

There is also a youtube video:
