by Maria Von Trapp [Music 780.92 Tra]

The Sound of Music has always been my favorite musical and one of my favorite movies. For years, I have wondered if the portrayal of Maria von Trapp in the movie was anything like the real person. This book answers that question with delightful stories told by the real Maria.

I read this book years ago and really enjoyed it. I was probably 14 at the time. I still remember parts of the book even after all this time. What impressed me was the ability to hear Maria's voice in the book.
