Brian Mida Bleecker was born in Detroit, Michigan on December 20th, 1963, into that distinct quandary between the assassination of President Kennedy and the arrival of The Beatles. He grew up among the autumn cornfields of Macomb County until his parents divorced and his mother moved him and his sister to Southern California in 1974. As a young man, Brian travelled up and down the Golden State, looking for adventure in his Volkswagen microbus. Then in 1987, while exploring the high desert, he uncovered a forgotten cache of miner's gold and equipment. This incredible find would solidify Brian's essential relationship with The Universe.
In 1996, Brian Mida Bleecker received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from San Jose State University, California's oldest institution of higher learning, and embarked on a life-long career as an art dealer and picture framer. For many years he operated Becker Fine Art and Old Town Framing in Temecula, California. In 2014, Mr. Bleecker electronically published "Desert Gold" by Kyle Samper, an account based on the great discovery of his youth. Two years later, in 2016, he published "Butch & Sundance ~ The New Evidence," an electronic edition chronicling the research and authentication of an amazing outlaw photograph obtained at his Old Town art gallery.
Brian Mida Bleecker lives in the beautiful rolling hills of Temecula Wine Country with his girlfriend and their many loving animals. He promotes wildlife awareness, specifically of the imperiled peninsular bighorn, barely surviving between the U.S. and Mexico.

Reading this book over again now that it's published, I'm so impressed with my brother. Brian uses lively writing, integrity and very careful research to show us how an otherwise obscure cabinet card sheds light on the lives of important personages and events of America's Wild West. Very creative, absolutely fascinating, well done Brian!
