Can you suggest me a free text on genetics algorithms?

You might want to check out http://www.cleveralgorithms.com/. There is a link to a free pdf version of the book.

http://cs.gmu.edu/~sean/book/metaheuristics/ is good. Genetic algorithms fall in a class of algorithms called metaheuristics. This book is about metaheuristics.

If you're just interested in genetic algorithms, those are covered in chapter 3.

You could try Applied Genetic programming and machine learning. I think it is available online in pdf format.

Genetic algorithms are pretty easy. a wikipedia read should suffice.
