My guess would be that you haven't changed the template extension.  See 
if index.tt works.  From my recollection, the book is building on top of 
the previous example and only references some of the previously covered 
material rather than explicitly going through it again (so also make 
sure you have the view set up).

As a note, it's not that Catalyst "recognizes the index", it's that the 
view defaults to trying to display a template matching the present 
action (which in this case should be "index") with the template 
extension appended.
