When the Whistle Blows-The Turk Greenough Story

By Tom Ringley

Some know Turk as a champion bronc rider, one of the very few to ride the notorious Midnight and then Five Minutes to Midnight, who was eventually inducted into the National Cowboy Hall of Fame and the Western Heritage Center. Others seem only to remember his short marriage to Sally Rand, the well known fan dancer. Western Movie fans may still recall his movie stuntman work with the likes of Roy Rodgers, Gene Autry and John Wayne but Turk Greenough’s story encompasses more than any one of these events and in When the Whistle Blows they all come together, interwoven to make the whole cloth of his extraordinary life.

Tom Ringley is also the author of Rodeo Time in Sheridan, Wyoming and Saddlestring - A History of the HF Bar Ranch, (Both books available in the Mercantile). Tom was mostly raised in Sheridan, Wyoming but has since moved to Big Horn, Wyoming with his Georgina.
