      Petersons field guides are made for various regions so you can use them to help ID what's local to you. (I have been told Audubon's are good as well but never used them.) Shows you known lookalikes (VERY important to research to know before you wild gather) and includes known uses too.

      Peterson’s seems to be better if you learn from pictures, Audubon’s work if you learn from photos (I can’t generalize enough from photos). I like Newcomb’s Wildflower Guide because it has a key (no more searching through dozens of little white flowers) http://www.amazon.com/Newcombs-Wildflower-Guide-Lawrence-Newcomb/dp/0316604429#reader_0316604429
