Electra to the Rescue brings young readers the captivating story of Electra Havemeyer Webb and her adventures in 'America's attic'. Illustrated throughout with archival images and full-colour photographs of items from the Shelburne collection, the book is a splendid introduction not only to a dynamic, unconventional woman but also to the rich, colourful world of Americana - the 'visual vernacular' of a nation's people.

Electra's enthusiasm was in many ways childlike, and she collected things that fire the imagination of children: rag dolls, cast-iron banks, embroidery samplers, miniature circuses - even a working paddle-wheeler. Here is a book that perfectly embodies Electra's lifelong mission: to teach, in a unique and fun way, the American tradition of craftsmanship and the often sublime beauty of simple, everyday objects.
