If you are looking for a book, some guy named Johnny Boggs wrote an award winning historical novel called Camp Ford (I don't know a thing about it, however).  But for history, the best thing you can do is get  Portals to Hell by Lonnie Speer that covers all Civil War prisons but has pretty good coverage of Camp Ford.
