Usually eBay will have what your looking for. I have Field Guide to North American Edible Wild Plants by Outdoor Life Books.

Here is the USDA Fact Sheets and Plant Guides. That is worth checking out. But a portable reference is recommend.

If you click on the Scientific Name it will show you where these plants are located.

NOT ALL PLANTS on this site are edible but they may have other uses.

I would go to amazon.com and type in wild edible plants Nebraska. Or check midwest plants. There you can read the various customer comments to see which ones are really good or what the books are really like. They usually have used books available too.
Better yet, go to your public library and check out whatever of those books they have, and if you like it, order it. If you don't like it, you arn't out anything.
You will likely want more than one book, since none of them list all the wild edible plants around your area or give you a good ID by itself.
