So very little is known about Una Hawthorne Morris MacKinnon, either her life or her “slender volume of poetry.” Serendipitously, Kobo has recently made accessible a number of digitized versions of little-remembered books, including The Tides of the Missiquash, which is not even available on Internet Archive. The copy we now have verifies that it was published in 1928 “(where previously all we knew was “the 1920s”), likely self-published, but any other information about the book or about Una MacKinnon herself would be very welcome!
