Was Maria von Trapp a fraud?

Maria von Trapp wrote several books, and she took inconsistent positions in them. In the first book, she tells how the captain called the children with a whistle. In "Maria," written in 1972, she states that the captain was not at home, and that the housekeeper introduced her to the children. To compound her fabrication, she blames the producers of "Sound of Music" for falsely portraying the captain as a harsh disciplinarian. They got the idea about the whistle from reading her first book, and the first book even has a chapter entitled "the baron doesn’t want it." So who is this woman trying to fool?
