The Prodigal Land, refers to the territory that is part of Jalisco in the coastal region of the Mexican Pacific, today this area is called “Costa Alegre (happy coast)” and is an area with great natural beauty and richness.But the novel takes place about 60 years ago, when the area was totally undeveloped, and here we find how this tale begins:My grandfather was Governor of the State of Jalisco between 1953 and 1959, I will explain how this happened later on, and while being governor, one of the rich land owners of Jalisco’s Coast invited him to travel with his family to see the beauties of the area, to motivate my Grandfather to build a road that connected Guadalajara with that area. So my grandfather travelled with my grandma, my dad and his sisters and brother in a small cessna plane to the airport this land owner had built in the middle of the coastal jungle.
