Maybe it's just bad luck, but ten-year-old James cannot seem to keep out from under his Grampa's feet. It's not just the color of his hair, which has gained him the nickname Alkali from the white crust that is the ruination of fertile soil. That's Alkali all right! But there is also an undeniable bond between James senior and junior, a bond which proves to be a lifeline when danger strikes.
