Unfortunately, this tutorial does not (?) have a chapter on indexing.  
I learned about this topic from the tutorial of Tobias Oetiker (see  
Help menu of the TexShop). Unfortunately, I was not able to implement  
what I learned on page 35. What follows is my short input file; it was  
based on my understanding of Oetiker. But the file did not compile.  
The error message was that the sty file cannot be found. Please tell  
me to accomplish this task. What is missing in my input file?

Yes, it is silly to have an index for tiny document. But it is only an  
attempt to implement what I learned.

Most Americans know that \index{Alaska} was purchased from  
\index{Russia} in 1867 before the discovery of its rich gold deposits.  
While the Russian Church had a generally positive influence on Native  
Alaskans, the beginning of the Russian period was marked by the  
frequent enslavement of the local population by adventurous fur  
traders.''  Male Eskimos (Aleuts), for example, were taken from their  
families and deported to the \index{Pribilof Islands}; they were  
forced to hunt sea otters and seals for their kidnappers. Most of them  
never returned to their starving wives and children. The population of  
Aleuts was halved between the middle and the end of the eighteenth
