Read full description of the books Me: A Memoir:I can't really put into words how much Brenda has meant to me. A true inspiration and a wonderfully full life. I admire her in so many ways and her book is just like her: quick-witted, practical and unassuming. If Brenda were alive today and knew how much I appreciated this book, she would be embarrassed and would probably say, "Ish!" to my sentimentality. But I'd like to think we'd also be fast friends and confidants and sharers of secrets. I will carry her spirit with me as I make my own writing journey.

Ueland was born to Andreas and Clara Hampson Ueland; the third of seven children. She attended Wells and Barnard colleges and received her baccalaureate from Barnard in 1913. She lived in and around New York City for much of her adult life before returning to Minnesota in 1930.
