Sebastian Hope (au). The Sea Gypsies of SE Asia -- tribes of semi-nomadic boat people -- living on the sea, follows a hunter-gatherer lifestyle based on the changing currents, seasons & fishing opportun’s. A chance meeting on the east coast of Sulawesi leads Sebastian Hope to set out in search of the elusive sea nomads. He is taken into a family & becomes a partner in a fishing enterprise. 3 years later he returns to look for Sea Gypsies in other parts of SE Asia, visiting Myanmar’s Mergui Archipelago & Thailand’s Andaman coast, the eastern seabord of Sumatra & the Riau-Lingga Islands, Sulawesi & the Sulu Archip. Reveals a culture clinging to a precarious existence in the modern age. He recounts both his frustration & his delight in immersing himself in their way of living.
