If you’ve seen The Sound of Music, then perhaps you would be greatly surprised upon reading Maria von Trapp’s autobiography, Maria.
You’d be shocked by how much the movie changed her story— things such as Baron von Trapp’s temperament, to why she married him. However, that’s not the only reason to read this book… Maria von Trapp is really funny! From her story about when she met the women from a tribe of cannibals, to the time she was visiting with Bob Hope’s family on April Fool’s Day, her book is really very funny indeed.
I’ve never seen Maria in a bookstore, so I’d suggest trying to find this at the library, or on an e-reader.
