The animal specifically that you are thinking of is probably
Merycoidodon that was formally known as Oreodon.
Right off hand I cannot think of many popular references to these common
One reference is Titled "The White River Badlands" O'Harra, (1920) South
Dakota School of Mines Bull. no. 13, 181 p., 96 plates. I bought a copy
at Badlands National Park a few years ago for $5.95. It was reprinted
for Wall Drug Store by the Argus Printers. It is a general overview of
the area and its fossils with pictures of skulls and skeletons.
The Phylogeny of the Oreodonts, Schultz and Falkenbach, 1968, American
Museum of Natural History Bulletin, 498 p. More detail and more name
splitting than anyone could ever use.
