If you want to learn native plant ID, and I certainly hope you do, the place to start is in spring, summer, and fall, when the plants have more distinguishing characteristics, such as leaf shape, flower color, and variety of fruit. Once you get to know these plants, then you will recognize them in winter when their leaves and fruit and flowers are gone. You will recognize them by their form, habit, and habitat. Then, after you know the plants well, observe them in winter and get to know characteristics in a natural way.
If you are dead set on identifying winter twigs even though you don't know the plants at other times of year, then you would be best off using this book together with another that has color photos and more information about habitat and range, such as Plants Of The Pacific Northwest Coast: Washington, Oregon, British Columbia & Alaska, by Pojar.
As a champion of native plants, I would like to give a five-star review to every book on native plants, but this book drains the life out of enjoying native plants in winter. The information is accurate (as far as I could tell) but not terribly useful.
