For seven children and young adults, the summer of 1964 was a magical one, spent in Salzburg, Austria, filming. The Sound of Music: Family Scrapbook tells their story - both during the filming and once the movie was released.

The Sound of Music is firmly 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, filming. The Sound of Music Family Scrapbook tells their story - both during the filming and once the movie was released. It features hundreds of photographs and memorabilia they have cherished and preserved over the years, including letters home - even 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 curtains, you will love this enchanting story of how seven boys and girls became a family - and how they kept that closeness for over 50 years.

This is a new, improved and updated edition which includes many new, previously unpublished photographs, beautiful full-sized glossy pages, updated information, personal tributes and so much more...
