The field guide that all the west coast mycological societies (and 
commercial pickers) use is _All That the Rain Promises, and More_,
by David Arora, about $20.   

Then there is the more indepth _Mushrooms Demystified_ also by Arora. 
about $30.

Most folks take "Rain" with them in their back pocket, and keep "DM" in 
the car or at home, because it weighs about 5 lbs!
