At least as a reference, you might like Wilmer J. Miller's _A Survey of
Genetics_.  It strongly emphasises classical genetics with biochemistry being
relatively minor.  Miller is a professor in the Department of Zoology and
Genetics here at Iowa State University (he's not on the net yet).  Sorry, I
don't have an ISBN number.
