The Story of the Trapp Family Singers by Maria Augusta Trapp

This is the true story that the musical “The Sound of Music” was based on. The true story was not quite as dramatic as the movie. The oldest child did not have a romantic interest in young man who had joined the Hitler Youth. The Nazis were not hot on their trail, but the captain did get a commission to be in charge of a ship, and he was tempted by the prestige but did not want to join the Nazis. They decided to come to America by this time. It’s an inspiring story that they came here with nothing, and they were able to

be successful. I highly recommend it.Trapp Family
