In the heart of Mexico, nestled within the elevated landscapes of Los Altos de Jalisco, lies a story woven from the threads of history and personal reminiscence. "For the Love of God," co-authored by Liborio Gutierrez Martin del Campo and Jose Gutierrez Gonzalez, is a profound exploration of a region rich in heritage and natural beauty, and a man's journey through the early chapters of his life​​.

Liborio Guti rrez, born in the humble but significant town of Capilla de Guadalupe, unveils his life story against the backdrop of the grand narrative of colonial Mexico. From the innocence of his early years to the threshold of his sixteenth year, his tale is interlaced with profound insights, cherished memories, and heartfelt dedications, especially to his son Jos , the guiding light of this literary journey​​.

This book delves into the historical colonization of the author's ancestors in the mountainous area of Los Altos de Jalisco, painting a vivid picture of the region's Castilian descent and cultural roots​​. It brings to life the traditions and legacies of the land, as well as the natural wonders and mysteries of places like Cerro Gordo, an inactive volcano with a storied past​​.

From the creation of water reservoirs to meet the community's needs, to the intriguing disappearance of water from El Tajo, the narrative is as much about the land as it is about the people who shaped and were shaped by it​​.
