You could do what I did some ways back and use the internet to find which edibles grow in your area. An excellent starting point is:

The website is run by a chemist with a PhD but he's been an amateur botanist for years. I've found that about 60% of the plants on his site also grow in NW Arkansas.

Another useful site for determining if a plant species is found in your area is the USDA plant database:

Type the scientific or slang name in the box and it will show you a map of the states in which the species is found. Zoom in and you can see in which counties in your state it's found.

Since Eastern OK should have a lot of species overlap with NW Arkansas I could send you the three PDF plant notebooks I created but they are big files. I have multiple color photos of each species as well as the location (river bottom, woods, etc.) where it's found as well as the counties in AR
