Jessa Gamble

I’m a writer living in Yellowknife, the capital of Canada’s Northwest Territories. My work has taken me through a muskox sanctuary, up to a High Arctic weather station and into Navajo prehistory. My first book, The Siesta and the Midnight Sun: How We Measure and Experience Time came out through Penguin in 2011.
