"Utah’s Stolen Treasures" - Compelling Work Blends American Indian Folklore & Personal History
"Utah’s Stolen Treasures" is a book that was inspired by three American Indian shields discovered by author Gene Covington’s grandparents in Wayne County, Utah back in 1926.
Using the discovery of the shields as a point of departure, Utah’s Stolen Treasures is a multi-layered tale, based primarily upon facts regarding the study of and caring for of the shields after they were discovered. As this fascinating book takes you via photographs through some of the most beautiful country in America, it also delves into the history of the early American pioneers and the American Indians they encountered. The tale is a compelling account of the love that not only the American Indians have for the land, but that all Americans share. It is a story of the importance of remembering those of the past.
The book’s story is centered around the three Fremont Indian tribal leaders who may have originally buried the shields in the early 1500s. This trio of Indian Elders appears throughout the story, first as living men and later in spirit form. The book also recounts the story of the author’s own family, defining who Native Americans are, as it follows the lives of his grandparents up to and beyond the discovery of the shields.
But Utah’s Stolen Treasures is more than just a family history or a tale of Indian folklore. Ultimately it’s a plea to have the shields returned to Utah and for all of mankind to come together in peace. It uses the American Indian people, who originally occupied the lands that are now the United States, as an example of just how this might be accomplished.

About the Author: Gene Covington is the ninth child, fifth son, and the youngest of June G. Covington and Florence A (Pectol) Covington. Florence was the oldest daughter of Ephraim and Dorothy Pectol, who discovered the “Pectol Shields.” Gene was conceived and raised in Wayne County, a product of the land from where the shields were found. His mind, soul and physical body were literally created and shaped from the land and its history. From being born at the beginning of World War II and his first memories of his oldest brothers returning from service in that war, his American heritage and strong American patriotism and loyalty to his country was formed. He was the fifth of five brothers to join the United States Navy. He served in the Navy for 20 years and his service saw the Cuban Bay of Pigs, the North Korean Pueblo incident, the Vietnam War and the Cold war. The Covington family is strong on American patriotism. None of these five brothers were draft, all volunteered to serve their country with pride. Gene is the product of a close family that came from the land of Wayne County, Utah. During his growing years, he lived, worked, hunted, fished, shepherded and farmed the lands as his brothers, sisters and ancestors had before him. He learned of its history and heritage from living on it and from his grandfather’
