From the moment Julie Andrews appears on the hills outside Salzburg to the final daring escape from the Nazis, The Sound of Music is embedded in the DNA of a generation. But what was it like to be part of all this? For seven children and young adults, the summer of 1964 was a magical one, spent in Salzburg, Austria with their parents or guardians, the film's stars and director, and last – but not least – each other.

The Sound of Music Family Scrapbook tells their story, both during the filming and once the movie was released. It features a DVD of their own homemovie footage, and memorabilia they have cherished and preserved over the years, including letters home to their families in America, a page from the script with edits marked in the margin and a ticket to the world premiere. If you ever dreamed of marching round the fountains singing Do Re Mi, or dressing in a playsuit made from drapes, you will love this enchanting story of how seven boys and girls became a family – and how they have kept that closeness for over 45 years.

    Comments about The Sound of Music Family Scrapbook:

    This is a book that you can read from cover to cover or just "dip" into it from time to time. It's especially good for fans of the film who may not know much about the actors in the film, or about how the film was made. As THE SOUND OF MUSIC is one of the most popular films ever made, the book should have universal appeal. I loved it and have already read it a few times. Just like the film, the book is really "addictive" in a good way!
