Title: The Story of the Trapp Family Singers

Author: Maria Augusta Trapp

KDL Description:

The Sound of Music
November 15 – December 15

The beloved Rodgers and Hammerstein family musical returns! A young woman who leaves a convent and becomes the governess to the Von Trapp family, falls in love with Captain Von Trapp and his family as the dawn of World War II approaches.

Amazon Description:

With nearly 1,500 Broadway performances, six Tony Awards, more than three million albums sold, and five Academy Awards, The Sound of Music, based on the lives of Maria, the baron, and their singing children, is as familiar to most of us as our own family history. But much about the real-life woman and her family was left untold.

Here, Baroness Maria Augusta Trapp tells in her own beautiful, simple words the extraordinary story of her romance with the baron, their escape from Nazi-occupied Austria, and their life in America.

Now with photographs from the original edition.
